The QUEST 1,000 € NULL Results And Replication Study Award

Publish your NULL results – Fight the negative publication bias!
Publish your Replication Study – Fight the replication crises!

The QUEST Center supports the publication of results which do not support the initial hypothesis, so called NULL results, sometimes unfairly labelled as ‘negative studies’.  We also want to promote the publication of studies with the explicit attempt to replicate own results or the results of others.

QUEST is offering this award of 1,000 € each to first/last/corresponding BIH, MDC or Charité authors of research papers in which the main result is a NULL or ‘negative’, or in which the replication of own results or the results of others is attempted. Basic, translational as well as clinical studies are eligible.
