Null result publications decline

As a person who has known first-hand the pain and difficulty of publishing null results, it’s understandable that publications would trend in this way…but when scientists only publish their positive (not positive meaning good but positive meaning they found an effect), it really puts the integrity of science at risk, and it also threatens scientific knowledge as a whole! So we should try, whenever we can, to publish important null findings (it can be done!).
