AI Tools in Scientific Publishing – An Introduction

Tools using artificial intelligence (AI) have increasingly been applied in scientific publishing. AI tools can benefit authors by improving the language of scientific material including peer-reviewed publications. Despite assisting with the production of scientific material, the meteoric rise in AI tools have prompted concerns on whether their use is appropriate and ethical. This webinar will introduce how AI tools are currently applied in scientific publishing, highlight the key questions shadowing their use, and explore what this means for EGU journals and beyond.

The webinar will last one hour, with 30 minutes for presentation followed by an audience Q&A. This webinar will be recorded and uploaded to the EGU YouTube Channel:


Dr Sam Illingworth is an Associate Professor at Edinburgh Napier University in the UK. He is an award-winning researcher in science communication and interdisciplinary studies. Sam is also the Chief Executive Editor of the Geoscience Communication journal and the founder of Consilience, the world’s first science & poetry peer-reviewed journal.
