[Purposes] This paper focuses on the application of artificial intelligence in the topic selection and planning of scientific journals, so as to provide a valuable reference for the integrative development of artificial intelligence technology and journal publishing. [Methods] The literature analysis method was used to discuss the application advantages and challenges of artificial intelligence in the topic selection and planning of scientific journals, and propose coping strategies for journal editors. [Findings] Artificial intelligence can not only improve the efficiency and accuracy of topic selection and planning, but also improve the matching degree of manuscripts. However, there are many challenges in the following aspects, such as the homogeneity of the topics, the fairness of the algorithms, the scientificity of the samples and models, the fairness to the young scholars, and the information literacy of the editors. [Conclusions] In the process of topic selection and planning with artificial intelligence, editors should base on their own advantages, play a leading role, comprehensively improve information literacy, and actively participate in the optimization design of artificial intelligence.
