Abstracts should:

  1. Clearly state the central research question and/or purpose of the project.
  2. Provide a brief, relevant scholarly or research context (no actual citations required) that demonstrate its attempt to make a unique contribution to the area of inquiry.
  3. Provide a brief description of the research methodology.

Other formatting guidelines:
