The submission form is extremely important thus without it, your registration is considered null and void. An abstract is a short summary of your (published or unpublished) research paper, usually about a paragraph (usually 250-350 words) long. A well-written abstract serves multiple purposes:
> An abstract lets readers get the gist or essence of your research quickly, in order to decide whether to read the full research paper;
> An abstract prepares readers to follow the detailed information, analyses, and arguments in your full research paper;
> And, later, an abstract helps readers remember key points from your research paper.
And in an abstract, you usually do not cite references – most of your abstract will describe what you have studied in your research and what you have found and what you argue in your paper.
Here are the typical kinds of information found in most abstracts:
Choosing Verb Tenses within Your Abstract
The abstract is usually written in the past tense because the investigation has transpired. However, a statement of facts in, say, the results and discussion and the conclusion, must be in the present tense. In recent years, however, many authors write in the active tense. They use the first-person perspective in writing the paper.
Keywords are words or phrases that you feel capture the most important aspects of your research. In this regard, the Publication Manual does not place a limit on how many keywords you may use. However, to be most effective, keywords should be a concise summary of your paper’s content. PBS recommends three to five keywords.
It’s also worth remembering that search engines and bibliographic databases use abstracts, as well as the title, to identify keywords for indexing your published paper. So what you include in your abstract and in your title is crucial for helping other researchers find your research paper.
Please take note that only online submissions, via email or the Google Form, will be accepted and all abstracts sent by walk-in (hardcopy), fax or post will not be considered.
