This page hosts summaries of our peer-reviewed publications, also known as Plain Language Summaries. These downloadable PDFs include information that cuts through research jargon and complex concepts to explain our research findings in everyday language. The summaries focus on the practical takeaways to ensure readers can easily find what they need and reduce possible misinterpretations.

Participate In Our Research
The NRTC has launched an online participant registry and we invite all who are interested to sign up. This registry will help us with recruitment for current and future research, and will be used to inform individuals about projects at the NRTC that may be of specific interest. Individuals who complete the registry will be asked to submit demographic information that researchers at the NRTC can use to determine eligibility for particular projects.
