should be complete in terms of parts and pages. The abstract of thesis is usually at the first few pages of any research papers. This is only appropriate because you want to give your audience an overview of what they should expect in the thesis paper. You probably have an idea how to write an abstract. Anyway, the abstract of thesis should be considered as a small summary of the entire research paper. It should only be composed of 300 to 500 words. This is the ideal number of words because you do not need to divulge too much info in the abstract, otherwise there is no sense in reading the other parts of the paper. Be careful in putting very specific data in the summary. You should only provide representatives from each chapter of the entire thesis paper. The abstract is usually written after completing the whole writing and researching process. It only makes sense because you cannot simply summarize something that is not yet complete.
Most often, the author of the entire work (or prospective work) writes the abstract. However, there are professional abstracting services that hire writers to draft abstracts of other people’s work. In a work with multiple authors, the first author usually writes the abstract. Undergraduates are sometimes asked to draft abstracts of books/articles for classmates who have not read the larger work.
