This paper is the first of a series whose aim is to respond the paper “Scientific integrity in the digital age: data fabrication, published in Research on Chemical Intermediates, DOI 10.1007/s11164-013-1084-5 ” by Khaled, and four related papers by the same author. The validity of the experimental findings with typical straight lines passing through the origin is discussed. This part presents clear-cut evidence from the literature that the variation of weight loss with time, constructed during corrosion and corrosion control research studies, yields typical straight lines passing through the origin, depending on the solubility of the corrosion products. This part also raises, and at the same time answers, the question: “are experimental results with typical straight lines passing through the origin necessarily referring to data fabrication?”
