References to artificial intelligence

Should I refer to ChatGPT?

Yes, if you have used ChatGPT in your work, you must mention all its use. Check out the instructions of your university:

How do you make a citation to ChatGPT according to a specific citation style? See instructions e.g. :

  • For example, an APA-style citation: 
    OpenAI. (Year). ChatGPT (Month Day version) [Large language model].

Writing your own texts (answers to assignments, essays, etc.) on ChatGPT is considered plagiarism or dishonesty in most institutions, even if you cite the source. Using ChatGPT in this way is not recommended.
