Definition of an Abstract

A research abstract is a brief summary of the research project. Usually, the abstract includes a problem statement, a methodology, results of the study, and a conclusion. Separately, a bibliography provides the sources used for your literature review.

Abstracts are required for both posters and presentations. To request funding to attend a state or national conference, you must apply through the LCU's Office of Undergraduate Research.
