A scientific abstract summarizes your research paper or article in a concise, clearly written way that informs readers about the article's content. Researchers use abstracts to determine whether a paper is relevant to their work and/or decide which papers to acquire and read. For academic conferences, participants only receive copies of the abstracts in proceedings. When readers search through electronic databases for articles, the abstract is usually the sole part of the paper that they see without cost. Typically 200-250 words, a scientific abstract consists of five key parts: title and author information, background, methods, results, and conclusions.
