Abstract: Harada calls a ring $R$ right simple-injective if every $R$-homomorphism with simple image from a right ideal of $R$ to $R$ is given by left multiplication by an element of $R$. In this paper we show that every left perfect, left and right simple-injective ring is quasi-Frobenius, extending a well known result of Osofsky on self-injective rings. It is also shown that if $R$ is left perfect and right simple-injective, then $R$ is quasi-Frobenius if and only if the second socle of $R$ is countably generated as a left $R$-module, extending many recent results on self-injective rings. Examples are given to show that our results are non-trivial extensions of those on self-injective rings.
