eLIFE: Plain-language summaries of research
Stuart RF King, Emma Pewsey, Sarah Shailes,
Bridget M Kuehn,
The eLife Features team explain the process used to produce eLife digests, and share some advice to help authors write plain-language summaries of their research.
As part of our “Plain-language summaries of research” series, we have compiled a list of over 50 journals and other organizations that publish plain-language summaries of scientific research.
A survey of over 300 people reveals what our readers really think of eLife digests.
