Citing ChatGPT

Follow your instructor's guidelines on the use of AI tools to complete work in their class.

When you use ChatGPT or another AI tool, keep a log of which version of the tool you use and your prompts or inputs. In addition to citing AI tools in your references, best practices for open and reproducible scholarship may include: describing your use of AI in the introduction or methods section of your paper, or including the exact text of your prompts in the body of the paper or appendices.
