Artificially creating articles

Some 99 drafts of scientific papers have been generated so far by a manuscript writer launched three weeks ago, according to the electronic lab notebook company sciNote.

The Manuscript Writer is described as the first one of its kind, allowing researchers to generate a draft of a scientific manuscript using data stored by the user on its software and references that are accessible in open access journals.

The device was developed by a team of scientists and experts on machine learning and software development of sciNote (creators of sciNote, a free open source electronic lab notebook) and it has the ability to simplify the process of preparing scientific manuscripts by using the technological advances in artificial intelligence.

Manuscript Writer, is aimed at reducing the time needed to prepare initial content. It gathers the data scientists organise and saved in sciNote during their research, and presents it in the form of a manuscript draft. This allows the scientists to save time on gathering their relevant data so they don’t need to start writing from scratch. Once they receive the draft, they can start editing and improving the text.

SciNote says that some 54 per cent of all studies cannot be confirmed, because of a lack of data management. 'There is no standardised approach and the amount of data doubles every three years,' said Klemen Zupancic, PhD in Biomedicine and CEO of sciNote. In this sense, electronic lab notebooks can help to reduce this rate. Once the data is systematically organised and traceable, Manuscript Writer can help out and save time needed to start writing the manuscripts.
