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. So, image editing and presentation are not always easy. This workshop will provide all scientists with the proper tools and knowledge to avoid common pitfalls, to spot imaging fraud, and to prepare sound images to prevent fraud. This workshop is dedicated to all researchers publishing microscopic image data who wish to do so in a lawful manner and who wish to learn about common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
The workshop includes presentations from experts in the field, facility heads, the DFG Programme Director “Scientific Instrumentation and Information Technology” and from a journal editor / representative, as well as Q & A and multiple hands-on sessions.
