Faculty Academic Writing Program: Writing an Abstract
Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 12:00pm to Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 1:00pm

An abstract in a journal article, on one hand, answers a series of questions for the reader while encouraging the reader to read on.  On the other hand, the creation of an abstract for the writer can clarify the entire structure of a journal article, even before the paper is written.  In this mini-workshop using a current project, you will practice and get feedback on your work using the five key rhetorical moves found in most abstracts.
