Some concrete ideas about manuscript abstracts


This article comes from a “Medical Writing tip of the Month” section in CHEST that I have found has had some really interesting articles about how to write articles. 

This particular article deals with abstracts, and for me this is an important way to enter into the subject as very often abstracts are the only thing that busy doctors and scientists have time to read. So, they are essential and NOT easy. This interesting article gives an insight into the ins and outs of abstract writing.
