Extending research reach in Medical publications

The impact of Plain Language Summaries on research accessibility & engagement
  • Friday 2nd December, 2:00pm GMT | 9:00am EST (USA)| 4:00pm EET/SAST | 7:30am IST

  • Speakers: Kelly Soldavin, Senior Editor and Jonathan Patience, Head of Commissioning, Medicine & Health.

What to expect

– Are plain language summaries truly valuable or simply the latest hype in the medical publications community?
– Are they a worthwhile addition to research or just a way to add more work to the process of publishing?

This talk is aimed at researchers and industry specialists in the field of Medicine and Health, addressing the use of Plain Language Summaries in that arena of publishing.
In the age of digital features, Plain Language Summaries (PLS) have emerged as one of the best ways to communicate research to a wide global audience. This realization has resulted in a variety of new resources – guidelines, toolkits, webinars, and articles – all of which support PLS of company-sponsored medical research. However, there are still a lot of questions about PLS, from their value to their implementation.

Join two experienced publishing professionals from Taylor & Francis and gain insight into the latest evidence-based research on PLS, best practices for development and advice from GPP 2022, and how PLS allow you to put important research into the hands of those who need it the most.

Publishing is an integral element of the researcher process with most academics required to publish at least once in their professional career.

This webinar will explore the tools and tactics that are available to promote your research, including press campaigns, social media engagement, Search Engine Optimization and conference participation.

We will discuss the different groups you may be trying to reach – academic and non-academic – and the channels you may wish to use to take your research to a global audience.

The content will be relevant to East African researchers of all experience levels. All are welcome, there is no charge, and there will be plenty of time for questions.
