Your plain language summary on Elements / SHURA

You can provide a plain language summary to accompany an accepted or published journal article or conference paper which you are depositing on Elements.

There are two ways you could do this when creating a journal article or conference paper record in Elements:

  • Enter the text of your summary into  the ‘Plain language summary’ field which can be found in the ‘Additional information’ field.
  • If your summary is available online, for example on the journal’s webpage or on a service such as Kudos, enter a link to your summary in the ‘Plain language URL’ field which can be found as an ‘Additional information’ field.

When you deposit your article or paper manuscript in Elements, a SHURA record will be created for your output. Any plain language summary added in Elements will also appear in the SHURA record for your article.
