May I publish AI-generated text in my research?

Modified on Wed, 19 Jun 2024 at 04:05 PM

We recommend not using AI-generated texts in your research findings. We see the AI function more as an assistant that brings in new ideas and helps you structure and understand your texts.

If you use AI-generated texts in your research, you must make it clear that it is not your own text. By using AI Assist in MAXQDA, you agree to our add-on terms and conditions.

Contents created with AI Assist

Authors who wish to publish their self-written content (such as a book or a collection of short stories), which has been partially created with AI Assist, may do so under the following conditions:

  • The published content is attributed to your name or your company.
  • The role of artificial intelligence in the formulation of the content is clearly disclosed in a way that cannot be overlooked by any readership and can be sufficiently easily understood by a typical readership.
  • The topics of the content do not violate the content policy or the terms of use of AWS Bedrock, meaning they do not include adult content, spam, hateful content, violent content, or other uses that can cause social harm.

For example, the respective role of the author should be precisely described in a foreword or introduction (or similar). AI-generated content should not be presented as if it were fully generated by a human. It is the human who must ultimately take responsibility for the published content.

Below is a standard formulation that you can use:

"This text was partially created with the assistance of MAXQDA AI Assist. After generating the initial draft, I reviewed and revised the text to the best of my ability and take full responsibility for the content of this publication."

Please also check with your university or institution for publication guidelines regarding AI-generated texts.
