Academic Writing Ethically

The Academic Writing Ethically (AWE) working group is dedicated to addressing matters related to ethical writing. We include topics related to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, intertextuality, post-plagiarism and hybrid AI-human writing. This group was formed as a result of discussions at the ENAI Summer School in 2022. The group will be launched in August 2023.

  • Conducting research related to artificial intelligence apps and tools that relate to writing.
  • Educating and providing professional development opportunities related to ethical writing.
