„Journal of Unsolved Questions“

Eine grandiose neue Zeitschrift: das „Journal of Unsolved Questions“ 

Science is not always about success. Most research projects are unsuccessful stories producing ambiguous or ’null‘-results that don’t lead to unambiguous conclusion. Nevertheless this ‚failed‘ research provides useful and valuable information for fellow scientists.Currently only research projects with positive results and clear conclusions have the chance to get published in scientific journals. Due to these publication practices a lot information is lost for the scientific community and additionally scientists find themselves in the dilemma of having to overinterpret data.

We have set out to change this.

With the Journal of Unsolved Questions (JUnQ) we provide a means to gather ’null‘-result research  and open problems. JUnQ is a platform to communicate projects, which just didn’t work, ambiguous data without exaggeration and unfinished investigations, which raise more questions than they answer.
