AI Ethics, Procedure and Policy


We are pleased to announce that our journal has established new rules and procedures for the use of AI and AI-assisted technologies in scientific writing. These rules and procedures are designed to ensure that the use of AI in scientific writing is responsible, transparent, and promotes the advancement of knowledge in a fair and equitable manner.

Authors must disclose any use of AI or AI-assisted technologies in their manuscript, including software, algorithms, or tools used to generate or analyze data, and any AI-generated content that has been included. They must also provide a clear and detailed explanation of how the AI or AI-assisted technologies were used and how they contributed to the scientific findings presented in the manuscript.

Furthermore, any AI-generated content included in the manuscript must be accurate, transparent, and properly attributed. This includes providing clear citations and references for any AI-generated text, figures, or tables.

Authors must ensure that the use of AI and AI-assisted technologies in scientific writing does not compromise ethical standards or contribute to any harm or inequality. They must be mindful of the potential biases and limitations of AI technologies and take steps to mitigate any negative impacts on individuals or communities.

Finally, authors must adhere to our maximum AI content requirement of 30%, which ensures that the use of AI in scientific writing is balanced and does not diminish the role of human expertise and judgment.

We believe that these new rules and procedures will promote responsible and transparent use of AI in scientific writing, and maintain the highest standards of scientific rigor and ethical practice.
