Cochrane Plain Language Summaries

What are Cochrane's Plain Language Summaries?

Plain Language Summaries (PLSs) help people to understand and interpret research findings and are included in all Cochrane Reviews. PLSs are created using standard content, structure and language to ease understanding and translation. A plain language summary describes findings from a systematic review in everyday language that is understandable to a non-research audience.
