The major citation styles have begun to address generative AI tools such as ChatGPT. Everyone agrees it's important to be clear if and when you use AI in your work, but there is still some disagreement about what that might look like. The following are the current recommendations, although as with everything, these are subject to change as the world continues to adapt to these technologies.
Citing AI in MLA Style
Here is the link to the MLA website where you can learn to cite generative AI in MLA style.
These directions are current as of March 2023.
Example of MLA Citation:
If you asked ChatGPT to describe the symbolism of Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice in your paper you would write it something like this:
When asked to describe the symbolism of Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, ChatGPT provided a summary about the transformation of Mr. Darcy and the novel's central theme of social class and personal growth. However, when further prompted to cite the source on which that summary was based, it noted that it lacked “the ability to conduct research or cite sources independently” but that it recomended If you require citations for academic or research purposes, I recommend consulting the original text of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen or academic sources related to the novel's analysis and symbolism.” (“In 200 words”).

Citing AI in APA Style
Here is the link to the APA website where you can learn how to cite generative AI in APA format.
These directions are current as of April 2023.
Example of APA Citation:
If you use the prompt “Is there such thing as luck?” the ChatGPT-generated text in this case indicated that "The concept of luck is a subjective and often culturally influenced belief. It typically refers to events or outcomes that seem to occur by chance, without any discernible cause or control by an individual. Whether luck is "real" or not is a matter of personal perspective and philosophical debate". (OpenAI, 2023).

Citing AI in Chicago Style
Here is the link to the Chicago Style website where you can learn how to cite generative AI in Chicago Style format.
Example of Chicago Style Citation:
Chicago style recommends citing ChatGPT in a Chicago footnote, treating it as a personal communication similar to an unpublished interview. If the prompt you used on ChatGPT is already mentioned in your text, the footnote consists of the phrase “Text generated by ChatGPT,” the date you prompted it, “OpenAI,” and the URL. Use the general URL of the tool, not one that links you to the specific response—this won’t work for other users.
