The use of artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots for generating original written content, including articles, thesis, and assignments, has experienced a significant surge(Khan, R. A., Jawaid, M., Khan, A. R., and Sajjad, M 2023). Researchers now have the ability to command chatbots, such as ChatGPT, to draft complete research papers, including systematic reviews, case reports, and original research. However, this widespread adoption has raised several ethical concerns regarding the appropriate usage of chatbots in academic writing (Fatani., 2023). This editorial explores the ethical implications associated with utilizing chatbots in research and highlights the need for clear guidelines and distinctions between plagiarism and legitimate support from AI chatbots.
