Special issue dedicated to studies where the results do not support the intervention tested and yet generate very useful data for the field

We seek papers for a JND special issue on the topic of "The Null Hypothesis" – dedicated to those studies where results were not as anticipated or hoped for. Testing if a hypotheses is correct or not is the way science advances, but pressure to publish has resulted in researchers preferentially publishing studies that disprove the null hypothesis: reporting on an effect is much more common than a lack of it. This is particularly evident in translational research, where potential therapies are evaluated in model systems or patients. The neuromuscular field is aware of a publication bias towards therapeutic approaches that appear to have beneficial effects in model systems and patients. Failure to publish studies where therapies are not beneficial, toxic or results are not reproducible, not only impedes science and therapy development, it also leads to unnecessary duplication of efforts and a waste of resources.

The World Duchenne Organisation (WDO) has generously offered to cover Open Access fees for publications related to dystrophinopathies in this special issue due to sponsorship of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) and Duchenne Parent Project Netherlands. WDO will select some of these publications for further awards.

Submission deadline: 1 March 2021

Authors: We invite you to share the story behind your published JND article to help us generate awareness of your research!

We aim to generate greater awareness of the research published in our journal by increasing the online reach of papers published in recent JND issues by helping researchers promote their work to a wider audience. To accomplish this, we would like to highlight the story being the research by gaining insight from our contributing authors.

We plan to do this by sharing the stories online, perhaps with accompanying short videos or animations created – most importantly – with input provided directly by you (if you are an author who has recently published in the journal). We cannot do this without your help.

So, if you or any of your co-authors would be interested to take part, please get in contact and one of our team will be in touch with you.
