What if your dissertation aims fail?

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2010; 76:80-2.

This article talks of an extremely important issue of negative results in dissertation research, but could be applicable to clinical trials too. Almost always negative results in research remain unpublished and not only does the medical world remain uninformed about such important findings, but the resources spent on such research get completely wasted. The article tells us about different preprint servers, in which authors can publish their results. We also learn about the advantages and issues related to information in preprint servers. A must read for every postgraduate student and anyone involved in medical writing.
