Anyone writing or editing abstracts knows that there is an art to conveying complex ideas and data in an approachable way. Whether it's for a scientific paper, an oral presentation, or the front page of your lab's website, the process of writing and rewriting an abstract and developing concise title takes experience and practice. Join MRS and a panel of editors from symposium organizers and scientific journals for a webinar on the abstract writing process.
After the webinar, attendees were encouraged to sign up for a one-on-one session with editors and authors to receive specific feedback on your abstract and title. Here they learned more ways to make their work approachable to broad audiences and methods for making their research stand out.
Whether you're new to abstract writing, or already mentoring students on their own, this webinar and workshop series provide examples and tips you can use in your own writing or editing responsibilities.
