    Dear AAHB Colleagues,

    I’m thrilled to share with you that my new book, “Supercharge Your Research Productivity with ChatGPT: A Practical Guide”, becomes available (both Kindle and paperback versions) on Amazon!

    For the first time in human history, we can delve into intricate dialogues with AI on any scientific topic, harvesting insights and inspiration from our mechanical counterparts. Yet, alongside the excitement, there's a hint of intimidation. The way we conduct research is transforming, and we must evolve alongside it, embracing this unprecedented human-machine partnership.

    "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" rings true, but the question remains, how can we wield the power of AI models like ChatGPT to fuel our research, boost productivity, and avoid pitfalls? This book strives to answer that critical question.

    Using nearly 100 tangible, real-world research examples, this guide presents a detailed pathway on how researchers, irrespective of their area of study, can employ ChatGPT as a competent research assistant. This guide encapsulates ten easy-to-follow principles to accomplish a vast array of research tasks:

    1. Identifying research topics and framing questions through an in-depth discussion with ChatGPT
    2. Formulating and refining hypotheses based on the chosen research question
    3. Undertaking literature reviews, covering all steps of a systematic review protocol
    4. Selecting adequate research design and corresponding methodology
    5. Developing valid, reliable, and efficient research tools
    6. Handling every aspect of data collection, management, and ethics
    7. Interpreting and analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data
    8. Writing and refining research papers and reports
    9. Addressing peer review comments
    10. Disseminating study findings through mass and social media platforms

    Each of these tasks can be seamlessly accomplished by merely typing prompts into the ChatGPT interface. I will guide you through this transformative process.

    Since leveraging the power of ChatGPT, my team and I have seen our research productivity skyrocket by 50%-100%. I want to share our strategies to empower you to achieve similar leaps in your own research pursuits.

    You can watch my recent talks at Washington University on how to write effective ChatGPT prompts to boost research productivity:
