Q. How do you do a blank template for an abstract?


How to write an Abstract--(according to the Purdue Online Writing Lab website):

  • Begin a new page. The abstract page should already include the page header.
  • On the first line of the page, center the word “Abstract” (no bold, italics, underlining, or quotation marks).
  • On the next line, write a concise summary of the key points of your research. (Do not indent.)
  • The abstract should contain the topic, research questions, participants, methods, results and data analysis.
  • It could also include possible implications of the research and future work connected with the findings.
  • An abstract should be a single paragraph and double-spaced.
  • The abstract should be between 150 and 250 words.
