Frequently Used Style Guides

Citing AI-generated content

A variety of guidelines are emerging on how to cite or credit the parts of your work generated by artificial intelligence and large language model tools. 

Northeastern offers an Insider's Guide for students (PDF) and an Overview and guide for instructors (PDF) on the responsible use of AI at the University.

Practices and standards for citing and crediting the contribution of AI in your work vary between style guides, so always consult your instructor, advisor, or editor to be sure of expectations for your academic work and research.
