Every year universities and academic institutes generate heaps of medical data that cannot be captured in a traditional paper. A contradictory or conflicting experimental result - where the expected or desired effect was not observed - usually goes unreported and never sees the light of publication day. Despite its potential, research that failed to confirm the efficacy of a treatment is usually demoted to lab drawers or archived and forgotten in lab books. The traditional journals failed to provide a specific platform for such large datasets that might benefit a wider research community and could without doubt be essential for efficient scientific progress. Looking at medical research from a different angle the JUMD editorial team believe that it would be more efficient and un-biased if all results –positive and negative- were made available to the scientific community. Reporting both successes and failures is crucial as both pieces of information are needed in order to allow clinicians to judge the risks and benefits of a given intervention. Moreover, and importantly, not publishing negative data results in a huge waste of resources and time, as other scientists considering the same questions may perform the same experiments and repeat the same findings. Therefore JUMD was launched to rescue and recover a great wealth of worthwhile information, hard work and funding.
