Automated decision making tools are already being deployed in academic publishing—including in the peer review process and editorial workflows—which pose serious risks to equity and academic freedom. On Tuesday, January 10th, at 12pm ET / 9am PT, the authors of a recent article, “The Perils of Artificial Intelligence in Academic Publishing,” will join the OpenCon Librarian Community Call to discuss the implications of these technologies and the struggle for control over the future of “sustainability, creativity, and critical values of the academic world.” The authors, Christine Cooper, Yves Gendron, and Jane Andrew, are also co-editors of Critical Perspectives on Accounting whose attention was brought to these issues when their publisher integrated AI-based tools into their editorial workflow.
