- Overview: The term abstract is a homophone which can mean one of two scholarly writing activities. One, is the abstract that you will write to introduce your dissertation. The other meaning is a shortened writing assignment whereby you write a condensed summary of an academic journal. For this week, we will focus on writing a scholarly abstract of a qualitative journal. More information about writing an abstract can be found via the web resource Writing Scholarly Abstracts. Since the purpose of this abstract is to summarize, there should not be any direct copying and pasting from the original article. Directions: View the rubric to make sure you understand the expectations of this assignment.
