Altered Photo in Journal Article Illustrates the Need for Manipulation Guidelines
Date:6/19/2013

s edited with contrast tools to show more detail. Photo labeling also guides the viewer to see what the authors are trying to represent.

The refuting authors charge that the “enhanced” photo provides the basis of unethical image manipulation and data fabrication, a form of scientific misconduct. The lack of control samples offered for comparison and flawed methodology of nonblinded examination of participant and control group samples add weight to their argument. The lead author of the article admits to flawed methodology, but defends the conclusions, offering unaltered images at the website http://www.headlice.org.

The current commentary presents altered and unaltered versions of the photo in question, illustrating how the content can be changed. It reiterates the need for journals to have strict guidelines on what image manipulation is allowed, including requirements for authors to provide original images to a journal as well as complete descriptions within an article of photo alterations made to the published versions.

Full text of “Evidence of Photo Manipulation in a Delusional Parasitosis,” The Journal of Parasitology, Vol. 99, No. 3, 2013, is now available.
