Submission + - More mileage for failed experiments! (arjournals.com)

asher09 writes: "All Results Journal: Chem editors write "It is well known that more than 60% of the experiments fail to produce results or expected discoveries. This high percentage of "failed" research generates high level pieces of knowledge. But generally, all these experiments have not been published anywhere as they have been considered useless for our research target. The objective of “The All Results Journals: Chem” focuses on recovering and publishing negative results in Chemistry. These key experiments are vital for the complete development of science. These negative results are the catalyst for a real science-based empirical knowledge."

I received an invitation to publish in this journal via email on March 31 at 11pm. My first reaction was "Oh April fool's joke, eh?". But upon some inspection, it appears legit.
Now I don't have to have successful experiments to keep publishing my data! Does this mean job security for me???"
