Use of AI

While AI programs are becoming more accepted in research and publishing, the editors of Prajñā Vihāra recommend that AI be used only for very restricted purposes like condensing the length of an article or for assistance in research. AI should not be used for writing the article itself. Prajñā Vihāra is a journal specializing in philosophy and religious studies where the use of language and terminology often departs from everyday usage. Our journal also caters to articles written by authors for whom English is a second language. We have found that AI often distorts or disguises the meaning of an article in the process of 'improving' it. Our editors and peer reviewers are dedicated to improving the articles submitted and it is better for them to work from unmodified articles.
