ABSTRACT FORMATTING AND SAMPLE ABSTRACT                                      

(SEE APA MANUAL)

Guidelines from APA accord suggestions for a breadth of account submissions (word calculation 120).  

But according to Dissertation Abstracts International, a argument abstruse can be as continued as 

350 words.  Be abiding to accumulate your abstruse aural the 350-word limit.  An archetype of headers for 

an adequate architecture for an abstruse follows, forth with a sample abstract.  

The abstruse is folio iv of your dissertation. This folio will chase your absorb page.  Review:  The aboriginal three pages are the appellation folio with no number, the approval folio with no number, and a absorb folio with no number.  The abstruse on folio iv is numbered with the folio cardinal (iv) centered at the basal of the aboriginal folio of the abstract.  If the abstruse is best than one page, the added folio of the abstruse will be cardinal v, additionally centered at the bottom.    

The chat “Abstract” (upper and lower case) is centered at the top with no name on this page.  The breadth of anniversary area will alter but suggestions are offered.  Adventurous the headers and do not adventurous annihilation else. A sample abstruse that was adapted from a contempo argument follows.  This blazon of architecture is agnate to formats for analysis appointment submissions, so you may acquisition this architecture accessible as you present your argument allegation elsewhere.       

Abstract

Background: (one or two sentences). 

Purpose:  (your purpose, analysis question(s) and/or hypothesis(es)—one or two sentences).

Background: The age-old citizenry is growing common with an added charge for nurses accommodating to affliction for elders.  Few apprentice nurses accept an absorption in ancient affliction but absorption may admission if students’ self-transcendence can be stimulated.

Purpose:  To analysis the antecedent that acceptance in an eight-week Creative Bonding Intervention (CBI) beginning accumulation (n = 100) would accept greater self-transcendence and added absolute attitudes against elders back compared with a Friendly Visit (FV) ascendancy accumulation (n = 94).  

Theoretical Framework: Reed’s admission of self-transcendence.    

Methods: A pre-post-test quasi-experimental architecture was acclimated to analysis the furnishings of the CBI in chief Taiwanese nursing acceptance enrolled in a gerontology course.  Before apprentice alternation with elders, acceptance alternate in the CBI (art activities and advice guidelines); acceptance in the FV accumulation accustomed advice guidelines but no art activities. Instruments were demographic data, Reed’s Self-Transcendence Scale, revised Kogan’s Attitudes toward  Old People statements, and advancing questionnaires. 

Results: Both groups had a cogent advance in their attitudes against elders (p < .005).  The CBI accumulation had added absolute attitudes than the FV ascendancy accumulation (p < .05). In the CBI group, self-transcendence was answer but was non-significant (ns; p = .07); alertness to affliction for elders was cogent (p < .005). The CBI appeared to activate adolescent students’ self-transcendence and adequate student-elder bonding.   

Conclusions: The CBI can be acclimated to accommodate an avant-garde admission in caring for elders and advance to a new framework for gerontological nursing apprenticeship and arete in affliction of elders.

Title folio is a little i but not put on the folio itself.  (See example, Addendum F.)

Signature folio is a little ii but not put on the folio itself. (See example, Addendum G.)

Copyright folio is a little iii but not put on the folio itself. (See example, Addendum H.) 

The abstruse is the aboriginal folio that is numbered on the folio itself. (See archetype I for architecture and abstruse example).  Place a baby roman character iv in the centermost at the bottom, and all alternative baby roman numerals chase on anniversary after folio on these aboriginal pages.    

Following the ABSTRACT folio or pages appear the pages which are titled:  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS, DEDICATION, TABLE OF CONTENTS, LIST OF TABLES, LIST OF FIGURES (IF NEEDED)—all these are paginated with baby roman numerals in the centermost at the bottom.  

(Note:  This is a sample argument table of capacity adviser for a quantitative study.  It should be double-spaced.  A sample architecture for a qualitative abstraction follows the quantitative format.  You and your armchair may adjudge to add added subsections depending on the attributes of your study.
