Introduction on Plain Language Summaries

The objectives of the PLS pilot project are:

  • To ease production, comprehension, and translation to non-English languages through standardization of content, structure, and language of the PLS, and develop writing guidance.
  • To ensure that PLS are written in a way that makes them as findable as possible by search engines and to develop guidance on how to write a PLS that makes this possible.
  • To explore how Review Groups can best implement the PLS template and the iSoF.
