Using AI tools like ChatGPT
Yes, you can use AI tools in your academic career, but note that these are tools, not shortcuts.
Watch out for Plagiarism
Quantic takes academic integrity very seriously—we define plagiarism as: “Knowingly representing the work of others as one’s own, engaging in any acts of plagiarism, or referencing the works of others without appropriate citation.” This includes both misusing or not using proper citations for the works referenced, and submitting someone else’s work as your own.
Even though these tools are generating "new" text, you’re still using them as a source and as such, they must be cited. Here's how:
(AI Tool, short prompt description, date)
(ChatGPT, ice cream prompt. 2023)
AI Tool Name. AI URL. Date generated. “Prompt - exact wording - this can be long and should be the last revision of the prompt that was used.” Short description of generated material.
ChatGPT. chat.openai.com/chat. February 7, 2023. “Give me a 5 point list of factors to consider when determining the launch strategy for a Guanajuato based ice cream shop. Consider tourism trends, labor supply, price elasticity of demand, demand and supply, general income trends and any micro or macro economic theories that are relevant.” 300 word document, list with conclusion.
