This is a two page guide to writing an abstract effectively. An academic abstract is a miniature work of art. Abstracts are not always produced as a summarising version of completed academic labour; instead, they frequently espouse academic intentions to deliver scholastic outputs and/or research outcomes in time for a scheduled event.
A robust abstract addresses four central questions which ask: What is it about? What did you do? What did you find? and, How is that important? An abstract that is concentrated is potent and potency heralds resolute work. A well constructed abstract is staunch writing that conveys maximum meaning through minimum words.
