To add to the answers here - if you want to broaden the understanding of "publishing experimental results" somewhat to "describing an experiment and the results of the experiment" then the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations is also worth considering. It has notions of experiments, planned outcomes of experiments, real outcomes etc. As an example, here are some axioms defining the term "assay" - which come close to experiment:
and (has_role some 'evaluant role'))
has_specified_output only 'information content entity'
('information content entity'
and ('is about' some
and (has_role some 'evaluant role'))))
realizes some 'evaluant role'
realizes some (is_concretization_of some
and (has_part some 'objective specification')))
There's almost everything there to define an experiment and experimental findings.
