2 7.0 REFERENCES CITED Helpful information on preparing your paper WHAT IS AN ABSTARCT OR EXECUTIVE SUMMARY? ABSTRACT: (approximately 100 words). This is different from an "introduction”. An abstract is, in essence, your entire paper condensed into 100 words. It explains your objectives, your results, and the important points that support your results. It should leave nothing to personal interpretation. Instead, it should clearly and concisely describe the essence of your paper. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: This is a brief overview of a report designed to give readers a quick preview of its contents; its purpose is to consolidate the principal points of a document in one place. After reading the summary, your audience should understand the main points you are making and your evidence for those points without having to read every part of your report in full; that's why they are called executive summaries -- the audience is usually someone who makes funding, personnel, or policy decisions and needs information quickly and efficiently. Remember that your purpose is to provide an overview or preview to an audience who may or may not have time to read the whole report carefully. Do not state what you will discuss (in a future tense), state your main points including your conclusion or recommendation. A Checklist for Completeness and Consistency Does the abstract or executive summary include all relevant parts of the paper? Is the paper divided into appropriate sections? Is the material in each section appropriate to that section and other information presented?

3 Is the format for the paper appropriate given the assignment? Does every figure (chart, map, photograph) and table have a title and, if needed, a caption so it is understandable apart from the text? Are figures labeled below the image, and tables titled at the top? Are figures and tables numbered consecutively in separate series?
