Webinar: Writing Effective Abstracts and Summaries

Journal articles are the key means of communicating scientific research. Unfortunately, academic texts are often characterized by a complicated writing style and abundance of jargon, which reduces clarity and effectiveness. In this webinar, ASLO Raelyn Cole Editorial Fellow Kelsey Poulson-Ellestad explores ways you can enhance key components of an article's title, abstract, keywords, and lay summary. We provide suggestions, tools, and resources for authors seeking to improve readability for a broader audience, and to maximize the visibility of their work online.
