How to Write An Abstract APA Style?

To write an abstract for a review or article, be brief and to the point. Include the purpose of the article and concise information on what it covers. If your readers understand the article information from your abstract alone, then you have done a good job. If not, back to the writing board. The APA style is from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition by the American Psychological Association. Find the manual on their website at
