Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative ring and let $ S$ be an $ R$-algebra. It is well-known that if $ N$ is an injective $ R$-module, then $ \operatorname {Hom}_R(S,N)$ is an injective $ S$-module. The converse is not true, not even if $ R$ is a commutative noetherian local ring and $ S$ is its completion, but it is close: It is a special case of our main theorem that, in this setting, an $ R$-module $ N$ with $ \operatorname {Ext}^{>0}_R(S,N) =0$ is injective if $ \operatorname {Hom}_R(S,N)$ is an injective $ S$-module.
