Biology--Current Event Abstract: Home

Science Writing

Assignment in brief


An abstract is a short summary or synopsis of an article in a journal or magazine. The purpose of preparing a current event abstract is to acquaint you with reading scientific literature, increase your awareness of timely topics of interest in biology, and give you practice in writing in a concise, scientific manner. The expectation is that the abstract is written in your own words, not a word-for-word cut and paste of the article.

Refer to your assignment for detailed instructions.
