View the guidelines for referencing AI-generated content in APA, Chicago, and MLA styles.

In general you must:

  • Cite the AI tool or the outputs from the tools when you use them in your work. This includes direct quotations, images, and data, as well as paraphrased content.
  • If you use an AI tool for some other purpose, such as translating, editing, or generating an outline, include a note about this somewhere in your paper.
  • Most view AI-generated content as a source with no author, so you'll use the title of the source in your in-text citations, and in your reference list.

***Remember AI may be using created citations, sources, and information that is not accurate. It is best to check the sources from one or more primary sources.
