A Take on ChatGPT From The Scholarly Kitchen Blog

Avi Staiman, founder and CEO of Academic Language Experts, writes the following in “Academic Publishers Are Missing the Point on ChatGPT” for The Scholarly Kitchen:

From the moment ChatGPT was released in November, researchers began experimenting with how they could use it to their benefit to help write systematic reviews, complete literature searches, summarize articles, and discuss experimental findings. I was therefore surprised to see that when addressing the use of GPT, a number of major publishers ignored the far-reaching implications and plethora of use cases, instead zeroing in on one particularly obscure issue, namely, ‘ChatGPT as Author’. …

However, publishers seemed to be answering a question that few were asking while avoiding other (more?) important use cases. Can or should authors use ChatGPT or other AI tools in the development and writing of their own research writing? Can it be used for conducting a literature review? What about analyzing results? Or maybe for drafting an abstract from an existing article? These are the important questions authors are asking where publishers seem to leave (too much?) room for interpretation.

For more information, read the blog post.
