Cureus April 2023 Newsletter
Hi, We recently hosted a call for submissions contest for case reports, but our authors didn’t submit alone. They had help from ChatGPT, the cutting-edge language model trained to assist with natural language processing. With the Chat GPT case report contest coming to a close, we'd like to remind everyone of our policies regarding the use of Chat GPT and other large language model (LLM) tools: No LLM tool will be accepted as a credited author. Why? Attribution of authorship carries with it accountability for the work, and AI tools cannot take such responsibility. Researchers using LLM tools should document this use in the methods or acknowledgements sections. If an article does not include these sections, the introduction or another appropriate section can be used to document the use of the LLM.

Cureus December 2022 Newsletter
Hi, In case you missed last week's big announcement, we are delighted to share with you that Cureus is now part of Springer Nature! Springer Nature is a German-British academic publishing company considered to be a leader in global research, educational, and professional publishing. As of December 2021, they had published 16% of all Open Access primary research, which is 29% more than any other publisher. The Cureus mission and editorial policies will remain the same. We will continue eliminating barriers to the generation and dissemination of medical knowledge, only now as part of Springer Nature. Their backing and trust will enable Cureus and our community of readers, authors and peer reviewers to grow even more quickly. We are thrilled to join with Springer Nature in paving the way towards an open science future.

Cureus November 2022 Newsletter
Hi, Looking for our popular Social Boost feature? We've changed the name to Article Promotion as we found that some authors were a bit confused by the old name. Get all the details on our Article Promotion feature and if your published article qualifies right here. A reminder for peer reviewers - please do not bother highlighting language and formatting errors during your peer review. Copy editing is the very last step of the Cureus publication process, so you can count on our editing team to fix these errors. Authors want your valuable insight into the scientific content of their article, whether it be a simple case report or a multi-year prospective study!
