Write an abstract that grabs your reader’s attention

If you are writing an article for the peer-reviewed section of an RCNi journal, you’ll need an abstract – essentially a summary of your article. Writing for publication is all about the reader and, as an author, you want the reader to journey through your article from start to finish with as few obstacles, forks in the road and dead ends as possible. Think of the abstract as a guide to this journey

Highlight what’s important

An abstract explains what lies ahead, it highlights important features or findings and it describes the end point.
