How to Write a Great Abstract

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Enrollment: Limited: Advance sign-up required

Limited to 20 participants

Prereq: none

For your paper to be successful, people have to actually read it. A compelling abstract is essential for capturing their attention and making them want to read more. But writing an effective abstract is challenging because you need to summarize what motivated you, what you did, and what you found, in a small number of words. In this workshop, we’ll analyze sample abstracts from different fields, learn editing strategies, and practice revising abstracts. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to write a strong abstract that clearly presents your research.

Sponsor(s): Writing and Communication Center
