In scholarly writing, abstracts and citations have a great deal of impact in terms of touching the outside research community (after all, when was the last time you did not use abstracts to select which search results or conference posters you wanted to read in entirety). Yet, authors often spare them little attention, throwing together a few sentences before submitting a manuscript.
As part of the monthly Library Lunchtime Learning series, next week we will focusing on how to write strong abstracts that accurately represent your research while attracting potential readers. Additionally, we will cover a few guiding principles for citing sources.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org; however, drop-ins are welcome!
