Another day, another AI ethics framework. This document (15 page PDF) looks at the use of AI in scholarly publishing. According to the document, "serious questions exist regarding intellectual property rights, confidentiality, privacy, and security." The current document draws from previously authored guidelines, and there are references to some of them at the end. Guidelines are provided for authors (don't use AI beyond basic assistance), editors (don't rely on AI reviews, and don't use AI for things like plagiarism checks), third-party vendors (basic AI use only), and readers (don't upload document to AI platforms). The document is quite prescriptive; while I as a reader appreciate the proposal as advice and as a perspective, I would not not defer to the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM) as authoritative. They have, if you will, a vested interest in this and related issues.
