Assignment 15.1...Abstract

An abstract is a brief summary of the research paper. It is between 150-200 words long and contains the main points and purpose of the paper. The purpose of the abstract is to give the reader a quick review of the paper to determine if they want to continue to read the paper in its entirety.

When written in APA format, the word "Abstract" should be centered and typed in 12 point Times New Roman. The main body must be "left justified" and also in 12 point Times New Roman. Do not indent the first line of the abstract paragraph. All other paragraphs in the paper should be indented. Also double space.


The abstract will appear on its own page just before the start of your research paper.
