JSHS Abstract template

The format for the 200-word abstract includes: 1 inch margins, keyed in 12 point font (Times New Roman).  Abstracts must be adequate in length, but not exceed these specifications.  The header proceeding the abstract text includes:

  • Title of the research
  • Your name
  • Name of your high school, high school city, and state
  • Name of your teacher/sponsor/mentor and his or her organization.  Precede the person’s name with a subheading (i.e., teacher, mentor, sponsor)
  • Include one line of space between the heading and the body of the abstract.

Abstracts are distributed to all symposium attendees. A good abstract is written to summarize the research paper. The abstract should accurately convey the essential nature of the research conducted and the most significant conclusions reached. A further purpose of the abstract is to attract the interest and curiosity of the non-specialist reader and thus encourage exchange, discussion, and elaboration between various authors and between authors and readers.
