Citing Artificial Intelligence (AI)

  • Always confirm with your professor whether AI tools like ChatGPT are allowed for each assignment
  • Always verify information sources generated by AI tools
    • AI has been known to generate false information and to cite non-existent sources
    • AI-generated text mines people's intellectual property without crediting them, which raises ethical concern
  • Various citation styles differ in their recommendations for citing AI tools (APA recommends attributing authorship to AI, whereas MLA advises against it). However, regardless of the style, use of an AI tool must be cited or acknowledged in some way. 
  • Some of this guidance may change and will be updated as recommendations evolve.
