Tips for Writing Abstracts
Writing an abstract can be a daunting task but with a solid process and the right pieces, you can get your work the recognition it deserves. Each component of an abstract will be discussed and writing tips will be provided for each of these sections so that they are graded highly by reviewers. Multiple examples of successful abstracts will be presented to illustrate the points emphasized.
Upon completion of this continuing education course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the steps in writing an abstract for presentation at a scientific conference.
- Identify three components that make a strong abstract.
- Use the information presented to develop a strong draft of an abstract to submit for consideration for presentation at a meeting.
