Critical summaries can be a helpful way for your research to be evaluated for it’s potential impact. They provide a critique of the what, why and how of your research, often together with some thoughts on its applicability or use in practice. You are unlikely to be removed enough from your work to write a critical summary yourself successfully, so you should focus on sharing your work with others who may do so such as collectives that create and share summaries e.g. Social Care Elf website, or those running journal clubs.
