Thirteen Ways to Write an Abstract

Thirteen Ways to Write an Abstract Thumbnail


The abstract is a crucial component of a research article. Abstracts head the textand sometimes they can appear alone in separate listings (e.g., conference proceedings). The purpose of the abstract is to inform the reader succinctly what the paper is about, why and how the research was carried out, and what conclusions might be drawn. In this paper we consider the same (or a similar) abstract in 13 different formats to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
