SPM79 | Writing a clear and concise abstract


First impressions matter. An engaging abstract (or summary) encourages readers to move on to the rest of the research article. Conversely, a poorly written abstract can cause readers to lose interest. This interactive session will provide techniques for writing a clear and concise abstract that captures a reader’s attention early on. In addition, a range of examples will help illustrate how to distill the essence of your article into an effective mini narrative. The session is suitable for researchers at all levels, but those early in their careers are especially welcome to attend. Feel free to bring along an abstract that you would like to work on!
