A suggestion to overcome publication bias towards positive findings.
What do you think about publishing negative results? They offer to submit project design and protocols to a journal before doing experiments. If journal accept project after peer-review, results will be published even if they are negative, or not not as expected in first hypothesis.
I think it is a good idea to prevent bias in results. Otherwise, researchers force experiments until getting “desired” results.
Definietely improves the quality of the research as you have to present everything. However, protocols can change on-the-go and that may cause a problem.
