Call for Abstracts - The Journal of Mobile Teaching (Launch of the Journal of Mobile Teaching - Mobile App Edition)
Organization: Regulus Communications, Inc.
Event: Launch of the Journal of Mobile Teaching - Mobile App Edition
The Abstract: Point of First Contact
The abstract is the first point of contact between the author and potential readers and should engage them in the concept and theme of the work. Readers often scan the abstract to determine if the article is worth reading, and as such it is the author’s one and only opportunity to make a reader want to read the article itself. To be effective in this respect, the abstract should be an accurate summation of the entire article and yet be simple, brief and to the point.
It is important to realize that the abstract is a summary of the entire article and not simply a restatement of the introduction. It is best to create the abstract last, after completing the final draft of your article. A helpful approach is to re-read your entire article while contemplating the four (or two) components listed below, and then assume you have 30 seconds to describe your entire article to a complete stranger. Done properly, the result will be your abstract.
For the JMT the basic components of any abstract regardless of the discipline:
Frame of Reference
Grounds for Comparison
Keywords and Key Phrases (8 - 10)
The Abstract should briefly describe each of the positions/concepts as listed above and not include diagrams, static images, or videos.
