The Journal of Non-Significant Differences (JNSD) is a student-lead, peer-reviewed journal designed to highlight the value of non-significant research findings while providing learners with a comprehensive understanding of the research cycle and the publication process. Central to the journal is an understanding that research does not have to be significant to provide valuable insight into ongoing scholarship. As such, articles are evaluated according to the soundness of the research process and the ability to contextualize the importance of non-significant findings. JNSD and CJIS were merged in 2016. Past volumes are accessible.
