To create a first draft of an abstract of your own work, you can read through the entire paper and cut and paste sentences that capture key passages. This technique is useful for social science research with findings that cannot be encapsulated by neat numbers or concrete results. A well-written humanities draft will have a clear and direct thesis statement and informative topic sentences for paragraphs or sections. Isolate these sentences in a separate document and work on revising them into a unified paragraph.
We consulted these works while writing the original version of this handout. This is not a comprehensive list of resources on the handout 8767 s topic, and we encourage you to do your own research to find the latest publications on this topic.
