An abstract is a concise summary of your paper. It appears after the title page on a page by itself and consists of a paragraph consisting of 150-250 words. A well-written abstract includes your research topic, research questions, methods, results, and conclusions. It’s important to remember that academic databases use abstracts, in addition to the title, to help researchers find appropriate papers or articles.
Abstracts differ from standard APA format in that there is not any indentation. Your paragraph begins in the left margin. Title the page “Abstract” in boldface, centered at the top of the page.
