ChatGPT cannot be credited as an author in scientific articles

ChatGPt helps to write articles and books, but in certain sectors it will not be possible to include the bot as a co-author of the works.

This has been indicated by Springer Nature, the largest academic publisher in the world, making sure that innovation in articles is maintained at 100%, since, let’s remember, ChatGPT does not innovate, it repeats the texts with which it has been trained in the past. .

It thus announces that software like ChatGPT cannot be credited as an author on articles published in its thousands of journals. However, Springer says he has no problem with scientists using AI to help write or generate research ideas, as long as this contribution is adequately disclosed by the authors.

The scientific community has reacted negatively to the accreditation of ChatGPT as an author, since it is considered that the software cannot fulfill the required responsibilities. Springer Nature points out that it is important to have clarity on how an article is produced and what tools are used, to guarantee transparency in scientific research and communication.

Magdalena Skipper, editor-in-chief of the Springer Nature journal, spoke out on the issue:

This new generation of large language tools (LLMs) – including ChatGPT – has really exploded in the community, which is correct and they’re playing with them, but they’re also using them in ways that go beyond how they can actually be used. use currently.

The point is that ChtGPT and previous large language models (LLMs) have already been named as authors in a small number of published articles, preprints and scientific papers, but it seems that now the topic is beginning to be regulated due to the new scope of these tools.
