To address the bias toward the publication of novel positive results, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) and the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease (JPD) invite researchers to “open their notebooks” and submit unpublished results from experiments that attempted to replicate previously published findings from other laboratories.
By encouraging the rapid peer-review and publication of these datasets, MJFF and JPD hope to increase the available information around previously published, high-impact findings. Applicants need to submit a two-page “Pre-submission” to MJFF for initial review. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a manuscript to JPD for peer review. Manuscripts passing peer review will be published in JPD. Authors of manuscripts selected for publication will pay no publication or Open Access fees.
