What is an Abstract?

Caitlyn G.

An abstract is a short summary before a paper begins that gives a reader a brief idea of the key points, questions , and findings/results. Typically, each section of the paper is summarized into a sentence or two. It can be as short as 100 words and go up to 500 or more depending on the requirements.
