Fakin the Citation: recorded workshop

On April 14 2023 Amy Chatfield, information services librarian at the Norris Medical Library, hosted a workshop, "Fakin the Citation: prevent and detect ChatGPT-generated citations in writing assignments." This workshop was created for the health sciences, and may refer to publishing and writing practices and conventions that are not used outside of these disciplines.

In this workshop, learn:

- typical characteristics of health sciences writing assignments that make ChatGPT less useful

- four simple tips that can be incorporated into writing assignments to reduce the utility of ChatGPT

- four methods to identify ChatGPT-generated citations

- to use library-licensed and free resources to determine if a cited article is imaginary or real.

Questions? Find contact information or make an appointment with Amy.
