Policy on generative AI and AI-assisted technologies utilisation in the manuscripts for e-AJ editorial process and publication
The implementation of this policy has been prompted by the increasing prevalence of generative AI (Artificial Intelligent) and AI-assisted technologies. Its objective is to offer enhanced transparency and assistance to writers, editors, and reviewers. Starting in 2024, e-AJ will actively monitor current developments in this field and make any adjustments or refinements to the policy.
e-AJ will only consider manuscripts that contain zero (or as minimum as possible – authors must provide justifications). Author(s) is/are required to submit an AI Detection Report together with the manuscript.
When using generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in writing, authors should only improve readability and language. AI can produce authoritative-sounding output that is wrong, partial, or biased, therefore authors should carefully review and revise the results. Generative AI and AI-assisted technologies should not be noted as authors or co-authors. e-AJ's AI policy for authors states that authors must do human activities (i.e., writing, drawing, etc in the manuscript entirely).
Follow the following steps to disclose generative AI and AI-assisted technology use in writing. The work will include a statement. Please note that author(s) are entirely responsible for his/her/their manuscript.
The core manuscript file must include a statement at the end of the paper before the References list disclosing the usage of generative AI and AI-assisted technologies. A new section called ‘Declaration of Generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process’ should contain the statement:
“This work was prepared using [Name Tool / Service] for [Reason]. This tool/service allowed the author(s) to examine and edit the content and accept full responsibility for the publication.”
