Byblos

Evolving the way researchers view and use null results to promote scientific collaboration.

Byblos

Null results are often not shared in scientific research, as they risk the reputation of the author and require large amounts of work for a relatively low reward. As a result, there is redundancy, wasted data, and a general lack of collaboration in scientific research. Project Byblos will be an application that provides a platform for scientific researchers to share their null results with limited effort and the incentive of potentially gaining authorship on related projects. This will result in a database of null results, allowing researchers to learn from the limitations of failed experiments and reducing the risk of redundancy in scientific research. Further, this application will serve as a tool to increase collaboration and communication within the general scientific community.
