A "Journal of Insignificant (Economic) Results"?

The Replication Network carried a guest blog post by Andrea Menclova this week. The post was titled, "Is it Time for a Journal of Insignificant Results?"

I was previously unaware of the existence of such journals in Psychology, Biomedicine, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

Andrea calls for the introduction of such a journal in Economics, and she makes a really good point.

Take a look at what she has to say!

  2. It is much needed! I have always thought of this. It will be a significant stuffs. The journals are always biased for POSITIVE results which is unfair.
