LOTS OF NEW JOURNALS OF NEGATIVE RESULTS.

LOTS OF NEW JOURNALS OF NEGATIVE RESULTS. I have posted several times, including here, about the need for journals of negative results (something my brother Elmer has long argued for). There were a few when I posted, but in the last three years, lots of new ones have been founded. This post lists a number of them. The post is on the psychfiledrawer website, which says it is an “Archive of Replication Attempts in Experimental Psychology.” The site says: “The “file drawer problem” (a term coined in 1979 by Robert Rosenthal, a member of our Advisory Board) refers to the bias introduced into the scientific literature by selective publication–chiefly by a tendency to publish positive results but not to publish negative or nonconfirmatory results.” The website also compiles scholarly articles and blog posts which have dealt with the problem.
