                                        Adapted from:  https://writingcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/abstracts/

As you know, an abstract is a self-contained, short, and powerful statement that describes a larger work. Components vary according to discipline. An abstract of a social science or scientific work may contain the scope, purpose, results, and contents of the work.

In what cases do we write an abstract?

  • when submitting articles to journals, especially online journals

  • when applying for research grants

  • when writing a book proposal

  • when completing the Ph.D. dissertation or M.A. thesis

  • when writing a proposal for a conference paper

  • when writing a proposal for a book chapter
