The goal of this exhibition is to increase awareness about research integrity. The exhibition highlights areas where both human errors and intentional manipulation have resulted in damage to careers, and it serves as a learning tool.

The exhibition has four parts. One deals with image manipulation and falsification. Another addresses data problems, including human error and fabrication. A third is about plagiarism, fake journals and censorship. The last section covers detection and the nuanced analysis needed to distinguish the grey zones between minor problems and negligence in case of fraud.
