To keep your Text Plain Language Summary (PLS) concise, it should be 250 words or less. Your PLS will be placed between the manuscript’s abstract and introduction, and it will have its own heading, ‘Plain Language Summary’.
Whilst writing your PLS (or when it is complete) it is useful to ask a non-specialist who is unfamiliar with your subject area to read it and provide feedback. They should be able to easily understand your study, its conclusions, and the potential impact of the research. Hopefully, they will also find the information interesting.
