Abstracts: Communicating Research Findings With Brevity and Concision

February 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Abstracts play a vital role in the communication of research: studies show that abstracts are the most frequently read part of a research article. But how do writers communicate the relevance and legitimacy of their research to members of the discipline? This evidence-based workshop introduces researchers to two typical structures for abstracts, while accounting for differences in disciplines and purposes. Participants will write or revise an abstract during dedicated writing time.

Facilitator: Dr. Patty Kelly, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication.

Location: IKBLC, Level 3, Dodson Room and on Zoom. Registrants receive the Zoom link 1 day prior to the workshop.

In-Person Perk: Following the workshop, participants have the opportunity for a brief one-on-one writing consultation with Dr. Patty Kelly or Dr. Xuan Zhang.

The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication does not record workshops or share workshop slides.
