This extensive survey is sure to be of assistance to each and every stakeholder of the academic publishing process. The survey report will act as a reference text where researchers, professors, academics, editors, etc. can be made aware of the experiences, thoughts, perceptions, problems faced, and resolutions arrived at by their global peers belonging to diverse geographies and affiliated to different academic institutions. The report will act as a marker of where academic publishing stands currently viz-a-viz integrating AI into its realm and also indicate future trends.
Key highlights of the survey report
AI to combat essential yet mundane tasks: AI-based solutions are being preferred by academics worldwide to take care of monotonous yet critical academic tasks like editing and proofreading.
The top-rated user-friendly AI tools: The most popular AI-powered tools used by academics were Elsevier’s Journal Finder, Grammarly, and Enago’s Trinka AI.
Identifying priorities: The report made it evident that the three topmost quality-check related priorities identified by academics using AI-generated outputs were reliability, accuracy, and consistency.
Automation and the future of academic publishing: Majority of the survey respondents were of the opinion that the academic publishing landscape can only benefit from increased automation and AI. Although optimistic about the impact and potential of AI, several participants were also apprehensive about potential security breaches and the prospect of automation overpowering or even replacing human stakeholders in academia.
Challenges identified: The crucial roadblocks in the path of adopting AI on a much larger scale in academic publishing is the dearth of AI-related knowledge and expertise in the field leading to difficulties in integrating AI-based solutions with the existing IT Infrastructure.
