What information is relevant for the citation of AI tools?

When adopting content generated by AI tools, the following information is required for a citation:


It is described which parts of a publication were generated with AI tools: e.g. text sections, figures, tables, data.


It is described which AI tools were used in each case: e.g. provider, model, URL.


It is described at which time AI tools were used: e.g. date, version.


It is described in which way AI tools were used: e.g. prompt, configuration, chat history.

However, if AI tools are used as an aid, i.e. without generating content intended for publication or as a rudimentary source of inspiration, a general reference is recommended, for example as a note or possibly in the methods section of the publication.
