Declaration of generative AI in scientific writing

The below guidance only refers to the writing process, and not to the use of AI tools to analyse and draw insights from data as part of the research process.

Where authors use generative artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, authors should only use these technologies to improve readability and language. Applying the technology should be done with human oversight and control, and authors should carefully review and edit the result, as AI can generate authoritative-sounding output that can be incorrect, incomplete or biased. AI and AI-assisted technologies should not be listed as an author or co-author, or be cited as an author. Authorship implies responsibilities and tasks that can only be attributed to and performed by humans, as outlined in the Invest AI policy for authors.

Authors should disclose in their manuscript the use of AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process by following the instructions below. A statement will appear in the published work. Please note that authors are ultimately responsible and accountable for the contents of the work.

Artificial Intelligence-Generated Content

Artificial Intelligence Generated Content Tools (AIGC)—such as ChatGPT and others based on large language models (LLM)—are deemed incapable of conducting original research without direction from human authors. Nor can they be held liable for published work or research designs, which are generally accepted requirements of authorship, nor do they have the legal standing or ability to hold or assign copyright? Therefore, this tool cannot fulfill the role, or be registered as the author of the article.

If an author has used such a tool to develop any part of the manuscript, its use should be described, in a transparent and detailed manner, in the “Methods” or “Acknowledgments” section. The author is solely responsible for the accuracy of any information provided by this tool and for properly referencing any supporting works on which the information depends. Tools used to correct spelling, grammar, and general editing are not included in the scope of this guide.

Disclosure instructions

Authors must disclose the use of generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process by adding a statement at the end of their manuscript in the core manuscript file, before the References list. The statement should be placed in a new section entitled ‘Declaration of Generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process’.

Statement: During the preparation of this work the author(s) used [NAME TOOL / SERVICE] to [REASON]. After using this tool/service, the author(s) reviewed and edited the content as needed and take(s) full responsibility for the content of the publication.

This declaration does not apply to the use of basic tools for checking grammar, spelling, references etc. If there is nothing to disclose, there is no need to add a statement.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers errors or inaccuracies in his published work, it is the responsibility of the author to contact the Editor-in-Chief of the journal or publisher as soon as possible and collaborate with them to withdraw the manuscript or issue an appropriate erratum policy under the Crossmark Policy.

Publisher’s confirmation

In situations of suspected or proven scientific error, publishing fraud, or plagiarism, the  Fakultas Syariah, IAIN Ponorogo, Indonesia. will take all necessary steps to explain the problem and revise the article in question in close consultation with the Editor in Chief.
