URCC Abstract writing guidelines

What is a research or creative project abstract?

An abstract is a compact, concise, and self-contained description of a project and its results or current status. An abstract communicates to the reader the essential elements of your project. What is your project? Why are you doing the project? What methods or approaches did you use? What did you learn or produce? How is your project significant and what might be its impact?
