Follow-up questions from last week's webinar "Title & Abstract: Your research paper in a nutshell"
Here are some follow-up questions for @Leena Joseph, our speaker for the webinar "The Title & Abstract: Your research paper in a nutshell," which was the last of our Academic Writing Month webinar series:
1. It's relatively hard for me to balance between: (I) "abstract should contains no information not included in the paper" point; and (ii) "abstract wording should be rephrased, not similar to the main text of the paper." (mostly requested by the reviewers)
2. How do you select key words to write at the end of the abstract?
3. Most of Call for Paper invitations, ask authors to submit a tentative title and tentative abstract. Meanwhile, the research is still on going. How should we respond to such request - Can we then change the title and abstract later?
