Annotated Abstracts

The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication developed this series of annotated abstracts from across the disciplines as a student resource. The annotations point out standard features of abstracts, while accounting for disciplinary difference. Technical vocabulary appears in blue italicized text with relevant definitions in floating text. The pedagogical approach embedded in this resource positions writing as a recursive process, and the materials provide opportunities for students to critically reflect on their own writing practices and knowledge-making endeavours in their respective disciplines.
