Tips for working correctly with digital images

Doug Cromey of the University of Arizona recently published an excellent one-page overview of the importance of teaching researchers appropriate manipulation of digital data-images.

“… It is imperative that researchers be taught how to correctly work with digital images”

He gives concise, practical guidelines on correct acquisitions, archiving, data management plans, and journal instructions.  He also cites general image-manipulation guidelines that are available for discussion and training.  The article is  “Scientific Digital Image Data:  Handle With Care”  published in the Office of Research Integrity Newsletter (Vol 19, no 3, June 2011, page 2).
