Writing Compelling Abstracts | GPSC26



Description

Abstracts are a crucial part of the majority of academic writing. Being able to compose a concise, accurate, and attractive abstract is an essential skill for graduate students. Abstracts allow you to promote your work to a broader audience by making it easier for others to understand your work, and by increasing your chances of successful conference and journal submissions.

This workshop presents information to help you understand the contents and purpose of abstracts and essential writing strategies for crafting a summary of your work in the abstract format. The workshop includes activities that allow students to acquire writing strategies in an interactive environment, benefitting from peer feedback on their work.

 

Learning Objectives

After attending this workshop, students will be able to:

1. Describe the contents and purpose of effective abstracts
2. Produce an abstract summarizing their work
3. Edit abstract drafts to decrease wordiness and enhance clarity
