The Microscopy and Image Analysis Platform (MIAP) in Freiburg organizes a workshop on 21-22 October, which will provide all scientists and students with the proper tools and knowledge to avoid common pitfalls, to spot imaging fraud, and to prepare sound images to prevent fraud.
Scientific fraud has become a serious concern in life sciences, as in all segments of science. Microscopic image presentation is a serious and, unfortunately, common source of fraud in life science publications. As image editing is commonplace during data analysis and presentation, even unwanted changes quickly lead to irregular and often illegal figures.
