Journal Announces Call for “Insignificant Results in Public Finance”

The journal FinanzArchiv / Public Finance Analysis put out the following call for a special issue:
“There is considerable concern among scholars that empirical papers are facing a drastically smaller chance of being published if the results looking to confirm an established theory turn out to be statistically insignificant. If true, such a publication bias can provide a wrong picture of economic magnitudes and mechanisms.”
“Against this background, FinanzArchiv / Public Finance Analysis is posting a call for papers for a special issue on “Insignificant Results in Public Finance”. The editors are inviting the submission of carefully executed empirical papers that – despite using state of the art empirical methods – fail to find significant effects for important economic effects that have widespread acceptance.”
