Q. Is an ABSTRACT page required with APA?
Some writing assignment instructions may indicate that an abstract is required, although most student writing assignments do not require one. Consult with your instructor to clarify assignment requirements if you are uncertain.
The purpose of an abstract is to provide a reader with a short summary of your written work or research paper. Generally, it is one paragraph ranging from 150 to 250 words. A well-written abstract should be:
- Coherent and readable
An abstract begins on its own page and is placed immediately after the cover page and before the text of the paper.
