Newly published BMJ blog - Barry Main et al.
13 October 2015
Time to make research findings CRYSTAL clear?
This recently published blog by BG Main, NS Blencowe, and JM Blazeby asks the pertinent question - should research funders and medical journals ask all authors to write plain language abstracts to accompany papers and other research outputs? In it, the authors outline several reasons for believing why this should be the norm and their rationale for an initiative which they will be working up in coming months.
