How to write an abstract

Most academic or scholarly journals and conferences (as well as a wide range of other publications and grant applications) require the writer to provide an abstract of their paper/presentation. This is arguably the most important section and often it is all that most of the audience will ever read. Here we refer to abstracts for papers, but these also apply to abstracts for conference papers or presentations.
