Reporting t-test (table) + boxplot (mean, range and outliers)

#1
Hi
I am looking for a reasonably appropriate way to report t-test along with a summary statistics. Initially I only wanted to go with box plots, and now I have to add t-test results as well. Is it a good idea to report the t-test in a table with a box plot for summary statistics as below image points out?

Since simple SD does not work for me (range and outliers are important), I chose box plots instead of simply reporting mean and SD. I just want to make sure if it is not very odd to report the statistics (and results) in this way.
Your comments will be very helpful.

This is interpretable, though you may put the values in the box for the reviewers, in that "Non-significant" could mean anything from 0.055 to 0.99. This could already be in the not included text, but I always enjoy knowing sample sizes as well. Lastly, if you are making 4 comparable comparisons here, you may need to correct for false discovery, though we don't know the context of your project!

I just wanted to add on a bit. I would recommend including p-values to about 4 decimal places. This is generally the advice I've gotten from statisticians. It avoids the binary, black-and-white mentality about p-values and allows the reader to judge for themselves the strength of contradiction between the data and the null hypothesis. See the ASA's Statement on P-values if you'd like more background.
