Scholarcy Summarizer

How can I use Scholarcy to create a plain language summary?

There are a number of ways that you can use Scholarcy to create a plain language summary for a research paper.

  1. Upload the paper to your Scholarcy Library (or try the Article Summarizer) where it will create a summary flashcard.
  2. Start with the text in the Scholarcy Highlights, Scholarcy Summary and Conclusion flashcard sections.
  3. If you need a different type of summary, try one of the Enhance options inside the Scholarcy Summary section.
  4. Follow links to definitions of technical terms for background context.
  5. Rework the text to suit your audience. If you are using Scholarcy Library, you can export the flashcard to Microsoft Word so you can edit it directly.
  6. Alternatively, you can try our new Smart Synopsis tool – click on the Advanced options and select Lay Reader mode from the dropdown on the left.
