ABSTRACT
In this article, the author reports on how can the availability of unpublished results which hide the decline effect be improved. As reported, in the decline effect, the statistical significance of purported evidence for psychic ability declines as studies are repeated. The author says that the availability of unpublished results can be improved by an open-access repository for all research findings, which would let scientists log their hypotheses and methodologies before an experiment.
