Protecting Institutions from Intentional Misconduct and Honest Error Research misconduct that involves inappropriately manipulated and duplicated images continues to be a problem.

Incidences of misconduct that have been reported in the past include cases that have been caused by intentional misconduct and from honest error, where authors were genuinely unaware of the proper practices for image processing. By preventing misconduct derived from honest error, ImaChek can improve the quality of scientific papers, protect the author’s careers and trust of the academic community.
