Writing Abstracts & Introductions

Journal article abstracts and  introductions must do a lot of heavy lifting in relatively few words. In this workshop, we will analyze examples of journal article abstracts and introductions to decipher the “moves” writers must make to present their research effectively. Participants must bring a journal article from a top journal in their field or a journal to which they wish to submit.

Lunch will not be provided as part of this workshop, but feel free to bring your own.

*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students in engineering and the natural sciences.
