The Student-Newman-Kuels procedure is a well-known step-down multiple comparisons procedure with critical values based on the Studentized range distribution. The False Discovery Rate is a Type I error rate for multiple comparisons, intermediate in stringency to the weak familywise error rate (experimentwise error rate) and the strong familywise error rate. We show that SNK controls FDR.
