Issue of Usage of AI to Write Articles

Dear VectMag Community:

In the recent times we have received submissions that show a high probability of usage of AI for writing articles. We understand that the practice of using AI for writing some sections of an article, and perhaps acceptable by certain publishing outlets.

VectMag's Statement

For detecting usage of AI we are not depending on the AI detection tools, our internal team manually reads each article, and a report is shared with the authors. Here at VectMag we are highly prejudiced against the usage of AI for drafting articles. Such articles shall be rejected outright, and the authors will be blacklisted. We follow the COPE position statement and Elsevier's reservations regarding the usage of AI for such purposes [1,2].

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) tools such as ChatGPT or Large Language Models in research publications is expanding rapidly. COPE joins organisations, such as WAME and the JAMA Network among others, to state that AI tools cannot be listed as an author of a paper. AI tools cannot meet the requirements for authorship as they cannot take responsibility for the submitted work. As non-legal entities, they cannot assert the presence or absence of conflicts of interest nor manage copyright and license agreements. Authors who use AI tools in the writing of a manuscript, production of images or graphical elements of the paper, or in the collection and analysis of data, must be transparent in disclosing in the Materials and Methods (or similar section) of the paper how the AI tool was used and which tool was used. Authors are fully responsible for the content of their manuscript, even those parts produced by an AI tool, and are thus liable for any breach of publication ethics. - COPE Position Statement

You may find it interesting that the ISC 2022 issue has been indexed in SCOPUS.
