An abstract is a brief summary of a research article, thesis, review, conference proceeding or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject or discipline, and is often used to help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose (Blake & Bly, 1993). It just a short paragraph but it is not an easy task.

Below is a simple guideline that we can used in developing an abstract.
Abstract Structure
  1. Introduction/research problem (1-2)
  2. Research Objective (1)
  3. Research Design (3-4) – where/when/how/what data
  4. Results (3-4)
  5. Conclusion (1)
