Webinar on STM’s draft recommendations for handling image integrity issues

Please register here via the Eventbrite page

An STM Working Group on Image Alteration and Duplication Detection has been working on best-practice recommendations that outline a structured approach to support editors and others applying image integrity screening as part of pre-publication quality control checks or post-publication investigation of image and data integrity issues at scholarly journals, books, preprint servers, or data repositories.

It provides principles and a three-tier classification for different types of image and data aberrations commonly detected in image integrity screens of figures in research papers and for consideration of impact on the scholarly study; it also recommends actions journal editors may take to protect the scholarly record.

In this webinar, the draft recommendations are presented, which will be followed by a consultation period where input is requested.
