How To Write
Guide to how we can help you write a plain language summary
Conveying medical results and complex concepts in plain language can be challenging. Future Science Group is therefore pleased to offer a complete writing service for plain language summaries, to ensure the vital information contained in medical publications is appropriately conveyed to non-expert audiences and incorporated into patient care.
Our highly skilled writing team will work with you and your authors at every stage to:
- Develop an outline based on the original research/review article(s)
- Determine the need and obtain any relevant permissions from the original publisher
- Draft the content using appropriate plain language
- Develop relevant bespoke graphics and illustrations
We are also able to work with you to create additional digital add-ons, such as audio content, videos and animations.
For further information and pricing for our plain language summary writing service, please contact Joanne Walker.
Please note, all writing services are separate from our editorial/publishing services. Should the plain language summary be submitted for publication in an FSG journal, acceptance and the decision to publish the article will be dependent on the journal’s standard peer review and editorial processes.
