A Policy on the Use of Artificial Intelligence in Publication

Abstract views: 58 / PDF downloads: 81





Recently, journal editors (and academics generally) have become aware of a breakout headache, or perhaps a breakout boon they need to confront: Artificial intelligence, AI—specifically Chat GPT. This technology first appeared on November 30, 2022—about a year ago—and is already a major concern and attractant for academics and higher ed students. University faculty (and I suspect high school as well) are alarmed particularly by this new tool’s implications for student plagiarism, but there is even more than that to be concerned about, as we will discuss. Academics and publishers have similar concerns about publications. I and the other editors of Culture, Education, and Future (CEF) are troubled by the potential unintended consequences that Chat GPT will have on the quality and depth of research in our field.
