How to write an abstract


 When you have participated in this course you will have learnt:

  • to select the abstract type for the journal to which you will submit
  • the key contents of an abstract
  • how to extract relevant information for an abstract
  • what to include – what to exclude
  • to judge the structure and contents of an abstract (i.e. you can review work of others and help colleagues with their abstracts).
  • However, the ultimate outcome of this course is of course that you will have structured and perhaps written your own abstract.

This one-day course consists of instructions, discussions, and examples from the literature. We shall put an emphasis on group work and you need to bring your PC or else work with somebody who brought his/her PC. It could also be a good idea to bring paper versions of articles with abstracts – good and bad - that you have read or dealt with already. Between 15.00 and 16.00, those who wish to finalize their own abstract can stay on for individual assistance from the course leader.

As a guide for your memory, a power point presentation will be available relating to this course. Depending on the type of students and their particular issues, it is not sure that the course will follow, step-by-step, this power point presentation, but all topics covered in there will be dealt with in the course.

Welcome, I look forward to seeing you soon!
