Welcome to COVID19 Preprint Analysis
This website checks figure element reuses across all COVID19 preprints in BioRxiv and MedRxiv (3,324 PDFs and 21,677 images as of June 13, 2020). See more details here. If we find a reuse, we will do the following:
- Notify the corresponding authors and the preprint servers and send an access token to our analyses.
- Post an expression of concern on PUBPEER if we receive no reply within ten days
Some statistics: 60% of the authors have replied in some form. 83% of the preprints with issues have been corrected by the authors.
