An RMIT expert group recently published a white paper specifically on Research Integrity and Generative AI. The purpose of the paper is to
answer questions researchers might have about what is and isn’t acceptable when using generative AI in research practice. The conclusions support the University’s position that these tools should be engaged critically and ethically. This means using generative AI should be done in accordance with RMIT’s established principles for the responsible conduct of research, which already underpin research activities irrespective of the technologies and tools used in research (RMIT University, 2023).
