The Abstract provides a clear, concise overview of a paper. It presents the main story and a few essential details. A good abstract sorts readers - allows them to decide if they want to read the paper or skip the paper - by persuading them in the first few sentences. Increasingly, journal editors and reviewers are using the abstract to triage submitted manuscripts.This session will focus on writing excellent abstracts. Taught by Penn-trained Elizabeth Colston, M.D., Ph.D.
