Generative AI




While publishers have different rules for how much authors can use generative AI, there are a few near-universal principles.

  • The use of generative AI must be disclosed. The appropriate place for this disclosure varies by journal and by the specific use of AI, but it would likely be through a citation or acknowledgment.
  • Generative AI cannot be a credited author. 
  • Authors are responsible for any errors or plagiarism from generative AI.

When writing an article or conducting peer review, keep in mind that uploading the article to a generative AI website exposes the text to third parties, risking confidentiality when AI platforms utilize user data in training and enhancing their models.
