It’s not surprising that research papers are difficult to understand; they
are usually written for a very specific audience. That audience is
typically fellow scientists within a niche field. This means the paper is
often full of technical information and jargon.

your field? Or by medical professionals that may implement some of your
findings in their treatment plans? Or by science journalists who could then
inform the wider public of the exciting work you are doing? (Read more
