Abstract - An abstract is NOT another
introduction. Its purpose is to enable the potential
reader to determine whether your work is relevant
to the work he or she is undertaking. When
searching the Index and Abstract databases of
the library to acquire suitable material to start your
literature research you will have used abstracts
for the same purpose. Most likely you will have
wanted the author to keep it concise and to the
point.
The abstract should consist of the following two or
three parts:
A short statement of the problem
A brief description of the methods and
procedures used in collecti ng the data
A condensed summary of the findings of the
study. This is optional and in practice
depends on the complexity of the findings.
The abstract may be written in a structured or
unstructured form. In the most basic form, a
structured abstract is based on the following
headings where possible: Aims and objectives;
Background, stating what is already known about
the topic; Design; Methodology; Results;
Conclusion, stating what this study adds to the
topic. The abstract should accurately reflect the
content of the paper. The abstract should not
include references or abbreviations. The abstract
should be followed by two to six keywords, which
accurately identify the paper’s subject, purpose
and focus. The abstract should also emphasise
new and important aspects of the study or
observations. Authors must be able to use this
document as a basis for their articles. Abstracts
should not exceed 200 words.

1 INTRODUCTION
The introduction basically explains to the reader in
detail some or all of the following points:
The reasons for undertaking the study
The assumptions which were made in the
study
Definitions of relevant terms used in the
report
The scope of the investigation, i.e. what is
covered and what is not
The methods used (often included in a
separate methodology section)
The theories which form the context for this
study (often included in a separate literature
review section)
The limitations inherent in the study
An outline of the structure of the report
2 AIMS / OBJECTIVES
You can only complete a literature review if you
understand your aims. Therefore, before you
start your research, write down the research aims.
Once you understand the aims, you can extract
the necessary and relevant information from the
past literature for your review. Your aims should
also be stated explicitly at the end of your
Introduction.
