The number of papers by Dr. Chitra Mandal, a SERB Distinguished Fellow at the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Kolkata that have problems with images — manipulation and/or duplication — continues to be flagged on Pubpeer website.
Pubpeer website allows independent scientists to publish post-publication review of scientific papers.
Already, Dr. Mandal’s 28 papers have been listed on Pubpeer for image manipulation and/or duplication. And in the last four days another seven more papers have been added to the list, taking the total to 35 papers.
