Abstracts play a vital role in the communication of research. Studies show that abstracts are the most frequently read part of a research article, and that abstracts help researchers determine whether or not to read the entire study. 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 of abstracts, while accounting for differences in disciplines and purposes. Participants will write or revise an abstract during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from the workshop facilitator. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.

Facilitator: Dr. Patty Kelly, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication
