Anatomy of an Abstract

by Dr Judith A. Swan (Princeton University)

classroom (3rd floor)

162 5th avenue, New York NY 10010

Everyone knows that abstracts must be short, but what other characteristics matter? In this workshop, we examine abstracts from a variety of scientific disciplines to discover the elements that make an abstract effective.

Participants then use the elements to analyze and revise their own abstracts.


Instructor: Judith A. Swan, PhD

Dr. Swan's Ph.D., which is in biochemistry, was earned at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
