Writing Tip #1

A good introduction or literature review is more than simply a summary of previous research. It analyzes and criticizes previous research and shows how your paper helps to solve a problem or answer a question in your field.

Writing Tip #2

The abstract should be written as a complete text. Imagine that a person will only read your abstract and not your whole paper when writing the abstract. It should mirror the same shape as an experimental paper: Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion/Conclusion. However, Medical abstracts and other types of “structured” abstracts with headings follow a different format.

The most common problems in science abstracts are not identifying the problem to be solved and/or reason for the research in the first sentence of the abstract and not showing the importance or implications of the results of the study. The most common way to improve social science abstracts is to remember to give enough specific details about the method and results.
