May 2017- Abstracts with Impact

Hello and welcome, this month we are exploring abstracts with impact. Our contributors this month share their knowledge and experiences of writing great abstracts.

Please click on the first link to find advice from Professor Carol Taylor; Co-Editor of Gender and Education, on writing journal article abstracts with impact. There is a great deal of information and advice on types of abstract, content and structure of abstracts, and the purpose of abstracts.

The second link leads to a piece written by emerging researcher Erika do Amaral Valerio on her Reflections on academic writing experiences of a non-native English speaker, which includes some important insights in writing abstracts.

We’d like to hear your views and experiences of writing abstracts.

Carol and Erika
