Artificial Intelligence and Chat Bots in Academic Research



Artificial intelligence, scientific research, ChatGPT, scientific ethics, AI platforms


The aim of our study is to discuss the use of artificial intelligence-supported platforms, which have become increasingly popular in recent months, in the context of ethics, opportunities, challenges, and the role of the researcher. In this context, we analysed platforms such as ChatGPT, ChatPDF, Consensus, SciSpace, and Scite Assistant. Within the scope of our analyses, we concluded that various regulations regarding the use of AI-supported platforms in scientific research should be enacted as soon as possible. Although such platforms offer opportunities for researchers, they also bring challenges such as referencing and reproducibility of scientific work. Besides, the use of AI-supported platforms in scientific research also puts the role of researchers into question.
