ACADEMIC DISSERTATION
Nishar, K., Tripathi, K. K., & Acharya, H. (2019). An analysis of the extent of agreement in the outcome of Polygraph and Brain Electrical Oscillation Signature Profiling (BEOS) in their usage for the detection of deception. Institute of Behavioural Science, Gujarat Forensic Sciences University.

Cohen’s Kappa was calculated, as a measure of the extent of agreement between the outcome of Polygraph and BEOS, from a total of 49 consecutive and connected cases at the DFS, Gandhinagar, for the period of 2007-2018. The results suggest that the two instruments cannot replace each other.
