Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. and Cohen Veterans Bioscience partner to launch Neurotrauma Reports Null Hypothesis -

Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers has partnered with Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB), the Centre for Biomedical Research Transparency (CBMRT), to launch Neurotrauma Reports Null Hypothesis at the 10th Annual Traumatic Brian Injury Conference.

Null Hypothesis is a collaborative initiative dedicated to publishing well-performed replication and negative studies — or studies where the outcomes do not confirm expected results or working hypotheses – via dedicated journal space. First launched in 2018 with Neurology®, the flagship journal of the American Academy of Neurology, the goal of Null Hypothesis is to catalyse a culture shift in science by publishing studies with negative findings as standard practice.

As part of CVB’s ongoing mission to drive reproducible, robust, and confirmatory science, CVB is providing the financial support to make articles with negative or replicable study findings freely available online. CBMRT is applying its highly successful Null Hypothesis model and Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. is providing the publication infrastructure.

The reporting of a well-performed replication or negative study (and sharing of underlying data) has significant value in the scientific process. It helps researchers avoid pursuing less productive lines of inquiry, increases transparency and public trust in the research, and helps funders identify dead ends when making decisions on future research investments.

The Null Hypothesis initiative has already demonstrated its potential to enhance balance in academic publications by urging more researchers in the neurology and cardiology fields to submit important negative and inconclusive research findings for peer review.
