Projects in veterinary medicine where the endpoint is animal health or in food science is also not be included in this educational program. (nih.gov)
I have some doubts regarding the sentence above:
Admitting that "is also not be included" is a grammatical construction, why does the writer use "is" rather than "are"—it seems to me that "Projects" is plural?
Apart the considerations on the exactness of the verb agreement cited in "1", why does the writer use "be" in "is also not be included"—maybe nothing is better in place of "be"?
Since I think nih.gov scripts should be not conversational, why does the writer use "also not" in that sentence—maybe a "nor" construction would be better?
Considering 1, 2 and 3 observations together, shouldn't it be a better phrasing the following version:
Nor projects in veterinary medicine, where the endpoint is animal health, or in food science are included in this educational program.
Can anybody explain, also considering the commas I added, if the rephrased version is better than the original? If so, why? If not, why not?
