摘要：Today's research world demands a variety of different abstracts to serve different purposes. As a result, writing abstracts can be a difficult task for graduate and international students, researchers, and even practiced authors. Abstracts andthe Writing of Abstracts is designed to demystify the construction of this essential writing form and to equip scholars with the skills to summarize their work in clear and compelling ways. This volume represents a revision and expansion of the material onwriting abstracts that appeared in English in Today's Research World. The Abstracts volume focuses on abstracts for researcharticles before addressing abstracts for short communications, conferences, and PhD dissertations. It also covers keywords, titles, and author names.
