Framework Papers

Framework papers investigate a diverse spectrum of ethical approaches and problems, including the current limitations of frameworks in AI governance. GRACE welcomes reflections on western and non-western frameworks. Papers must also be free of excessive philosophical jargon and define terms clearly for a non-philosophical audience.


Social Impact Papers

Social Impact Papers

GRACE welcomes social impact papers describing ethical issues with any aspect of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. A paper should include a convincing motivational discussion and argument, articulate the relevance of the argument to AI/ML, describe the scientific and social impact of the work, include all relevant proofs and/or experimental data, and provide a thorough discussion of connections with the existing literature. 

GRACE caters to a broad readership. Papers that are heavily mathematical in content are welcome but should include a less technical high-level motivation and introduction that is accessible to a wide audience and explanatory commentary throughout the paper. 

Research Notes and Commentary

Research Notes and Commentary

The Research Notes and Commentary section of GRACE will provide a forum for short communications that cannot fit within the other two paper categories. The maximum length should not exceed 1000 words. Some examples of suitable Research Notes include, but are not limited to the following: op-eds, interviews, concise technical research aimed at other specialists; a detailed exposition of a relevant theorem or an experimental result and its ethical implications.



GRACE invites students to review important existing and emerging research areas, reviews of topical and timely books related to AI, and substantial, but perhaps controversial position papers that articulate ethical  issues of interest in the AI research community.


Grace podcasts are conducted by journal mentors Dr. Harriett Jernigan
