The use of digital research services has brought a dramatic increase in efficiency and easiness in research for both authors and editors. The new frontier seems to be the use of Artificial Intelligence which could further improve the quality of the research process. This exploratory study employed a direct observation of academic and non-academic resources to orientate information and research to answer two simple but fundamental research questions. The first one is to provide a structured map of these research services; the second one is connected with the potential impacts on the academic community brought by these services, including AI, opening an agenda for further investigation. Therefore, after a first mapping of the current services available for authors and editors/publishers, we investigated both digital services currently used by researchers and potential AI applications still at the beginning of their development. Answering the two research questions, we aim to debate the effects, impacts, and consequences of using these digital services and AI for academic purposes.
