(Post publication) Peer review and the chopsticks story – Phil Moriarty

Last modified: May 14, 2017

In this short video (actually two, this is the sequel ) Phil Moriarty first explains how peer review works (or should work) and what was missed in the chopsticks case. The evident image manipulation was noticed after publication and was covered by blogs, leading to retraction of the paper. If fraud like this is not discovered in pre-publication peer review, this type of ‘post-publication peer review’ does the job.
