JMIR Infodemiology Editor-in-Chief: Tim Ken Mackey, MAS, PhD welcomes submissions to a special theme issue “Exploring the Intersection Between Health Information, Disinformation, and Generative AI Technologies.”
JMIR Infodemiology, currently indexed in PubMed Central, PubMed, Scopus, DOAJ, and CABI, is a peer-reviewed premier journal in the field of infodemiology, health information, data science, and misinformation and is inviting submissions from different disciplines of health communication, public health, informatics, data science, social and computational science, and engineering to explore the potential impact of large language models (LLMs) on health-related topics.
Specific topics of interest for this special issue include:
- Infodemics, Misinformation, and Disinformation in the Context of LLMs and Emerging AI Technologies
The proliferation of health-related misinformation and disinformation presents significant challenges to public health and well-being in this era of rapid technological advancement.
- Advancing Research Methods on LLMs and Emerging AI Technologies
We encourage submissions that advance interdisciplinary methodologies examining the potential impact of LLMs and emerging AI.
- The Role of Public Health and Medical Professionals in Utilizing Generative AI
Public health and health care professionals play an important role in shaping the health information ecosystem. We are particularly interested in submissions that discuss the involvement of public health and medical practitioners in using LLMs to address misinformation.
- Examining the use of LLMs Through the Lens of Health Equity
The rollout of new technological tools such as LLMs has the potential to make health information more accessible, but it may also result in unintended consequences, including exacerbating health disparities.
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2024. All accepted manuscripts will be published as part of the JMIR Infodemiology special issue titled “Exploring the Intersection Between Health Information, Disinformation, and Generative AI Technologies.”
