Useful on writing an abstract

From Kamler & Thomson (2006), via The Thesis Whisperer:

An abstract should do the following:
– Locate the research in relation to larger issues, or debates in the field
– Focus down on questions or problems this paper will address
– Report on the results, sample, methods, approaches used
– Argue for a point of view or angle on the material under discussion
