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


According to the Purdue Owl website:

How to write an Abstract:

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

To see a sample Abstract, visit the APA Help guide and click on Sample Paper.
