    Default As compared vs. compared

    Hello,
    Which sentence is correct? -
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower accuracy of this procedure as compared to the Novak's procedure," or
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower accuracy of this procedure compared to the Novak's procedure," or maybe
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower accuracy of this procedure in comparison to the Novak's procedure."

    Thanks in advance,
    Nyggus

    "Smith (1993) reported a lower accuracy of this procedure compared to the Novak's procedure,"
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower accuracy of this procedure in comparison to the Novak's procedure."

    These seem better, though I wouldn't use the article before Novak's, or would remove the possessive. here's how I would phrase them:
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower degree of accuracy for this procedure compared to Novak's procedure," or maybe
    "Smith (1993) reported a lower degree of accuracy for this procedure in comparison to the Novak procedure."
