Journals of Negative Results
The Forum for Negative Results is a journal for publishing papers about hypotheses which turned out to be irretreviably wrong.

This is important because most publications have a bias towards publishing papers which prove hypotheses, so a lot of valuable information about what didn't work gets lost.

The link includes a list of negative results journals in other fields.

All Results Journals is an additional bunch of nothing-under-the-rug journals for various fields.

Links thanks to Morendil and Kyrie, respectively.

So it's like Mah Jong: Anything you do will be wrong.
