Academic Journal AI Policies

Publishers policies are constantly evolving, but most require authors to document their use of AI and to properly cite the tools. Individual journals may have more restrictive policies, so if you are considering publication through a particular venue, consult their guidelines for authors before using generative AI as part of your writing process, especially if you are in the humanities.

Below are some journal publishers who have provided generative AI guidelines or policies. This is a limited list. Please consult the official publisher’s website for updated information.
