A Null Result

In another project (quick and straightforward, started while visiting Arizona), I got a null result. An interesting null result for sure but no result nonetheless.

How are these published? At all? There is a well-known bias against null results in science. People are simply not interested in something that doesn't show a relation with other qualities. Spearman ranking don't lie...there is no relation.

Well we are going to try to publish anyway!
