What's an abstract?

An abstract is a short summary of a published research paper or scholarly article, usually about a paragraph long. A well-written abstract serves multiple purposes:

  • an abstract lets readers get the gist of the paper or article quickly, in order to decide whether to read the full paper;
  • an abstract prepares readers to follow the detailed information, analyses, and arguments in the full paper of article, and
  • an abstract helps readers remember the key points.
