The Dark Side of Science: Misconduct in Biomedical Research (11th YPIC webinar)

Nov 10, 2022 04:00 PM in Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

Elisabeth Bik, PhD is a Dutch-American microbiologist and an image forensics detective, who left her paid job in industry to search for and report biomedical articles that contain errors or data of concern. Since 2019, she is a science integrity volunteer and consultant who scans the biomedical literature for images or other data of concern and has reported over 6,000 scientific papers. She has done a systematic scan of 20,000 papers in 40 journals and found that about 4% of these contained inappropriately duplicated images. In her talk she will present her work and show several types of inappropriately duplicated images and other examples of research misconduct. In addition, she will show how to report scientific papers of concern, and how journals and institutions handle such allegations.
