The dark side of science: Misconduct in Biomedical Research. Lecture by dr. Elisabeth Bik and PubPeer's Boris Barbour

On October 13, Elisabeth Bik will give a lecture in Amsterdam, explaining 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 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. 
Additionally Boris Barbour, PubPeer member since it's ealy days, will give a talk on post-publication peer review with PubPeer.
