Question 1: Are the aims clear?

What the question is about and why it is important

A good quality publication will have clear aims. A publication should commence with an overview indicating what it is about, what it covers and who it is meant to be for. Clear aims at the beginning of a publication are important because they indicate what aspects of the condition and its treatment will be addressed and help you to judge whether the publication is likely to contain the information you want. It is particularly important to know what may not be included, as you may need additional information before you can make an informed decision about treatment.

Rating the question

Examine the opening paragraphs or home page for a description of the content, scope and target audience of the publication. Although the publication’s title or URL/address may be descriptive, the aims should be clearly outlined in the text at the beginning if the publication is to get a good rating.
