Welcome to our virtual class! Today we will cover quite a bit of ground; I'm sharing two templates that I hope you will find useful for planning your research, as well as synthesizing and writing your literature review:
In order to present your research at Research and Scholarship Days 2021, you will need to submit an abstract.
What is an abstract?
An abstract is an approximately 200-250 word summary of your research. It should be brief, relevant and interesting and is intended to generate interest in your research. If you have not yet carried out the research, you may use the information from your research proposal.
At minimum, your abstract should contain:
|If you have already completed your research||If you have not yet completed your research|
|1) What you did||1) What research you intend to carry out|
|2) How you did it||2) What method you intend to use and why it is suitable|
|3) Why you chose that particular topic to study and its relevance||3) Why you have chosen to undertake this particular research|
|4) What was learned from the research||4) Its expected impact, relevance or importance|
|5) Future directions|
Note: Your abstract should contain only information that you will be presenting on.
Explore these resources to help you write your abstract (or improve it if you already have a draft written).
Don't forget to set your scholar preferences in the top righthand corner so that the "library links" for Mount Royal (College and University) are displayed!
