In the few months since the introduction of GPT-4, the world has found itself being reshaped by the capabilities of this advanced language model in unprecedented ways. The model has already been integrated into many facets of society, with considerable ramifications, and the world of scientific research and publishing is no exception. Where this will take us is still unknown, but there is no doubt that the effects will be far-reaching, posing both challenges and opportunities for researchers, universities, academic journal publishers, and also for us, as a company specialising in academic editing.

  • Present a brief overview of the current status of AI in relation to its use in scientific research and academic publishing, including concerns about ethics and data privacy.
  • Share our experiences of testing AI language models for editing academic papers, including the benefits and pitfalls, so that you can better understand when and how you can safely use AI to your advantage.
  • Explore the limitations and potential of current AI models, discuss the concerns over their use, and explore our predictions for their short- and long-term development.
