Chitra Mandal of CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology has seven more papers with manipulated images

Chitra - J13 - 2

Dr. Chitra Mandal, a SERB Distinguished Fellow at the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Kolkata has seven more papers with problematic images — manipulation and/or duplication. These papers have been listed on Pubpeer. With this, there are 35 problematic papers by Dr. Mandal.

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.

Chitra - J13 - 3-OptimizedAlready, 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. A paper published last year in the journal Cell Death and Disease seems to have problems.

In two instances, the figures have been reused in two different papers. These papers also have images that have been manipulated. She is the corresponding author in six of the seven papers.
