In this video Elisabeth Bik explains her work as an 'image forensics detective' searching and reporting biomedical articles that contain errors or data of concern. During the last years Elisabeth 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 presents her work and shows several types of inappropriately duplicated images and other examples of research misconduct. In addition, she shows how to report scientific papers of concern, and how journals and institutions handle such allegations.
