The simplicity of this work is due to the lack of strict requirements regarding the amount of materials presented in the work, the presence of analysis of these materials and the availability of conclusions on the material presented. The abstract is written on one of the topics of interest to the department, concerning which there is already an established opinion. And this attitude to this work exists in all departments of educational institutions.
The abstract is a work, for the creation of which it is enough to carefully study several fairly common sources, let’s say the textbooks. As a criterion for selecting sources, their volume is most often considered, since it is easier to choose the information necessary for creating the abstract from a large number of information or data.
As practice shows in a sufficiently voluminous source, one can find a chapter or a separate paragraph, which can completely coincide with the preset topic of the abstract. The main purpose of such work as an abstract is to clarify some point of view on one of the scientific or practical problems. When completing the essay, the student gets the most complete idea of the existing point of view on the problem, finds out the existing approach to solving this problem and clarifies some general conditions and approaches. Ideally, the abstract may recommend a more in-depth study of the problem, or a new look at the current view. However, such cases are extremely rare, and the abstract remains a work that reflects the established point of view.
The standard requirements for the abstract consist in the following structure of this work: starting with a table of contents, then there is an introduction, then the main part, which consists of several chapters, the conclusion is concluded at the end of the work and immediately after it the list of sources. The structure of the abstract is most clearly visible in the work plan. This part of the work is usually located in the “Content”. Drawing up a summary plan, in most educational institutions, is carried out without approval from the head. The introduction, as well as the conclusion, relate to the simplest part of the work. To formulate an introduction, it’s enough just to emphasize the importance of the topic of the work, determine the goal that will be achieved upon completion of the work, outline several ways to achieve this goal. To draw up a conclusion, it is sufficient to state the achievement of the goal, list the answers to the task and draw a general conclusion about the solution of the problem. The most difficult part of the abstract is the main part. It is very important to make a logically coordinated structure of the material presented in a few chapters.
