Why has the description of my document changed?

Descriptions with 20 or fewer characters are automatically replaced by our system. This is because those descriptions are not detailed enough and can therefore not be easily found on the Stuvia website or by Google. Usually, the study, book and number of pages are added. The old description is added at the end to ensure no important information has been deleted.

"Safety H1" will become 'Summary of 15 pages for the subject thinking about safety at the VU (Safety H1)'.

We recommend that you make your description as detailed as possible, this makes it easier for users to find your documents.
