Journal of Negative Results in BioMedicine

ISSN: 1477-5751 (Online)


Journal of Negative Results in Biomedicine (JNRBM) will cease to be published by BioMed Central as of 1stSeptember 2017. BioMed Central will continue to host an archive of all articles previously published in the journal and all articles published in JNRBM during its time with BioMed Central will remain fully searchable via the BioMed Central website.

The mission and purpose of JNRBM has always been to encourage the publication of null results, addressing bias in the literature. Since its inception, JNRBM has provided a platform for results which would otherwise have remained unpublished, and now many other journals have followed JNRBM’s lead in publishing articles reporting negative or null results. As such JNRBM has succeeded in its mission and there is no longer a need for a specific journal to host these null results. The journal will therefore be closing soon and JNRBM  is no longer considering new submissions.

Journal of Negative Results in BioMedicine is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for the publication and discussion of non-confirmatory and "negative" data, as well as unexpected, controversial and provocative results in the context of current tenets. The journal provides scientists and physicians with responsible and balanced information to support informed experimental and clinical decisions.
