Authors are welcome to submit manuscripts created entirely or in part by OpenAI's GPT-3 or other algorithmic publishing tools. A few subtleties involved in publishing manuscripts generated OpenAI are discussed below.
OpenAI by policy does not claim copyright on GPT-3 output. OpenAI does require that its users comply with its terms of service, which prohibit them from attributing certain types of sensitive or unsafe content to OpenAI or GPT-3.
Nimble Books policy is that there must always be a human or organizational author that takes responsibility for a book's content. Thus, the author of record for a book published by Nimble Books will never be "OpenAI" or "GPT-3". It is the human being or organization who conceived the project, created the prompts, and assembled the materials. That legal person is the copyright holder who will sign a standard contract assigning publication rights to Nimble Books. The byline on the cover does not have to be your legal name; Nimble Books has occasionally published books by pseudonymous authors. If you have a good reason, like a sensitive day job or concern for your safety, I'm glad to discuss it with you.
Nimble Books highly recommends that authors describe the role of GPT-3 and thank OpenAI in the Acknowledgments to the book.
You are entirely welcome to submit OpenAI-powered manuscripts of any sort on any topic, although you should bear in mind that Nimble Books is a business and our goal is to pick manuscripts that will find many enthusiastic readers.
