Noah Gray on scientific abstracts

Scientific abstracts are the hooks attempting to capture a discerning reader’s attention, the shortcuts saving the busy reader some time and the keys unlocking scientific knowledge for those lacking a portfolio of academic journal subscriptions. But don’t be dismayed if you’re still confused after reading an abstract multiple times. When writing this leading, summarizing paragraph of a scientific manuscript, researchers often make mistakes.

Good advice for my own thesis.
