Short Abstract: Science relies on trust, but even after peer review, papers may have concerning data. Dr. Bik, an image forensics detective, left her industry job to uncover and report errors in biomedical articles. Her scan of 20,000 papers found 4% with inappropriate image duplications. In this seminar, Dr. Bik will discuss various errors, research misconduct, reporting procedures, and the rise of 'paper mills' producing low-quality or fake papers.

About Dr. Elisabeth Bik: Dr. Elisabeth Bik is a microbiologist who scans biomedical literature for concerns, reporting 7,000+ papers. Her work has led to 1,000+ retractions/corrections, earning her the prestigious 2021 John Maddox Prize.
