We Are Proofig
Our diverse team of senior life science researchers, computer vision experts, and digital SaaS product leaders formed Proofig to improve the way scientists conduct their research and to help publishers, editors, researchers, and institutes ensure the highest standards of quality and integrity in scientific publications.
We’re convinced that our advanced automated software can streamline review processes and lead to better scientific publications.
To improve scientific publications by proofing of figures before publication
Over the years, we have become familiar with the damaging problem of image duplication and manipulation throughout scientific publishing. This is why our founder, Dr. Dror Kolodkin-Gal, has decided to take action.
Dr. Kolodkin-Gal has over two decades of experience when it comes to the research on diseases progression and various treatments. He has also mentored plenty of students and doctors. Yet he wanted to do something more for the scientific community.
Being aware of the massive toll paid by colleagues and journals alike when errors are discovered, he wanted to create a way to maintain the highest of standards when it comes to publication integrity.
Dr Dror Kolodkin-Gal: "As a senior researcher in life sciences, I became all too familiar with the damaging problem of inadvertent image duplication in scientific publications. My awareness of the massive prices paid by my colleagues and the esteemed journals in which their studies are published, which damages the integrity of the scientific process itself, is precisely what motivated me to found Proofig."
