Abstracts: Communicating Research Findings With Brevity and Concision

Abstracts play a vital role in the communication of research: studies show that abstracts are the most frequently read part of a research article. But how do writers communicate the relevance and legitimacy of their research to members of the discipline? This evidence-based workshop introduces researchers to two typical structures for abstracts, while accounting for differences in disciplines and purposes. Participants will write or revise an abstract during dedicated writing time.
