How Are STM Publishers Using Generative AI?

Actual Implementations Are Well Within Bounds

The Close-Up

The bullet points on the slide read as follows:

  • The majority of publishers are embracing a range of uses of GENAI
  • Responsibility for the content stays with the authors
  • Anything beyond basic support tool (grammar checks, etc.) has to be disclosed
  • Peer review keeps on being conducted by humans
  • Authors and readers don’t use manuscripts or articles as prompts.

The slide was shown during a workshop at the December STM Association meeting in London. The STM Association has released a white paper on the topic of generative AI. The 15-page document is entitled Generative AI in Scholarly Communications
