All About Abstracts…

The abstract page of your thesis explains in a few lines why your work is important. It provides a summary of your major results, preferably with results from your research. It should explain the major implications of your work. Your abstract should be concise (500 words approx in 1 or 2 paragraphs), readable, and quantitative. 

      Abstracts generally do not have citations.

      Be explicit.

      Use numbers where appropriate.


Answers to these questions should be found in the abstract: 

  • What did you do?
  • State why your work is important.
  • What question were you trying to answer?
  • How did you do it? State research method used.
  • State major results obtained in your research. 

Point out at least one significant implication of your work.
