APA Format & Citation Style, 7th edition

A guide to help users create citations using APA (American Psychological Association) style, 7th edition.

Citing Artificial Intelligence and ChatBots

For ChatGPT and other AI Chatbots, list your methods and distinguish between your words and the generated text.

ALWAYS check with your instructor for permission about using AI in your writing.

Example of accurately explaining of AI in-text:

When prompted with “Is the left brain right brain divide real or a metaphor?” the ChatGPT-generated text indicated that although the two brain hemispheres are somewhat specialized, “the notation that people can be characterized as ‘left-brained’ or ‘right-brained’ is considered to be an oversimplification and a popular myth” (OpenAI, 2023).

Reference Format
