The Open Pharma recommendations for plain language summaries of peer-reviewed medical journal publications were published in Current Medical Research and Opinion in September this year. These recommendations are a concise outline of a minimum standard that provides top-line guidance on plain language summaries for authors, medical writers, publishers, and research funders. In this webinar, for Open Access Week 2021, we hear from two co-authors of the recommendations from the MedComms and pharma/biotech industries, as well as from a publisher and a patient representative. They will provide diverse stakeholder perspectives on how plain language summaries, equity in medical publishing and open access go hand in hand. Our panellists will be Slavka Baronikova (Galapagos), Adeline Rosenberg (Oxford PharmaGenesis) and Kelly Soldavin (Taylor and Francis) and Alan Thomas (Ataxia and Me).
Questions from the audience will be welcomed.
It should be of interest to anyone working in and around MedComms.
The webinar is free of charge and, all being well, a recording will be posted afterwards at NetworkPharma.tv.
Note we are allowing 60 minutes for the webinar and we always aim to finish promptly on time.
MedComms Networking Webinars will be run every Wednesday at 12.00 midday UK time from 15 September through to 15 December 2021. Topics will range widely but the aim is always to be relevant to people working in and around MedComms, by which we mean medical communications, medical education and medical publishing, and anyone who wants to start.
