Andrew Bolton, a very successful fund manager, advises that whenever you plan to buy a stock, try to explain the reason for your choice in a few simple sentences that your teenage children can understand.
I have recently applied this stratagem to the ‘conclusion’ section of BJGP original article summaries. Complete confusion ensues; the sentences are long and obfuscatory and the point/benefit of the research baffling to my children and myself.
Please try to use simple clearer English. If a research team cannot really explain simply what they are trying to do and why, ask for a revised draft. Does the College now have a in-house style that few ordinary jobbing GPs can understand?
