How do I write an abstract?
(Use this document for developing your “Journal Article” summary)
The format of your abstract will depend on the work being abstracted. An abstract of a scientific research paper will contain elements not found in an abstract of a literature article, and vice versa. However, all abstracts share several mandatory components. When preparing to draft your abstract, keep the following key process elements in mind:
Key Process Elements:
1. Reason for Writing:
What is the importance of the research? Why would a reader be interested in the this work?
What problem does this work attempt to solve? What is the scope of the project? What is the main argument/thesis/claim?
An abstract of a scientific work may include specific models or approaches used in the larger study. Other abstracts may describe the types of evidence used in the research.
4. Results: Again, an abstract of a scientific work may include specific data that indicates the results of the project. Other abstracts may discuss the findings in a more general way.
What changes should be implemented as a result of the findings? How does this work fit in with your future plans? Please write a paragraph that’s a MINIMUM of 3 to 5 sentences.
Please remember to include the citation.
