Integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools into academic writing has the potential to revolutionize the process of composing academic works. As these tools become more prevalent, concerns about academic integrity arise, prompting the need to explore strategies that uphold ethical standards and academic norms. This study aims to investigate the use of AI tools in academic writing, focusing on three key research questions: (1) common AI tools used, (2) the impact on efficiency, productivity, and writing quality, and (3) strategies to preserve academic integrity. This study involved ten graduate students engaged in academic writing, and data collection was conducted through semi-structured interviews with each participant. The interview transcript was then analyzed using thematic analysis. The study revealed that graduate students employed a range of AI tools: Quillbot, Grammarly, Chat-GPT, Easy-Peasy AI, Rytr AI, Humata, and DeepL. These tools are used for several writing processes, from generating ideas, drafting, enhancing content, paraphrasing, and grammar checking. Participants acknowledged the positive impact of AI tools on writing quality (grammar and organization improvements) and efficiency (reduced writing time). To preserve academic integrity, participants emphasized the responsible use of AI tools as supportive aids rather than replacements for their efforts. Strategies included editing and proofreading AI-generated content to align with personal writing style, cross-referencing, evaluating AI suggestions, and upholding authentic voice in writing. In conclusion, AI offers valuable benefits but necessitates a thoughtful and responsible approach to maintaining academic integrity. Scholars must balance using AI as supportive tools while preserving the ownership of their academic works.
