Zgradba izvlečkov : logična struktura izvlečkov na področju tehniških znanosti : doktorska disertacija by Nina Jamar( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstracts can facilitate our selection of material to read. Today, during a time in which we are witnessing a flood of information, this is particularly important. We decided to research the kind of structure which would be the most appropriate for abstracts from the area of technical sciences, and on the basis of those findings we developed guidelines for their writing. First, the components of abstracts published in journals were analyszed. Second, prototype and recommended abstracts were created. Third, reader satisfaction with the different forms of abstracts was examined. Based on the results of all three parts of the research, guidelines for writing abstracts were developed. The results showed that abstracts should follow the IMRAD format and should contain 150-250 words. They should be written in non-structured form. When writing abstracts researchers should pay careful attention to accuracy, brevity, clarity, comprehensiveness, inclusion of significant and exclusion of unimportant information, informativeness, readability, and usefulness. The structure must be very clear. The abstract must be presented in such a way, so that readers will immediately see whether the topic of the research is relevant to them, and whether the research was done well. The results also showed that creating uniform guidelines for the components of abstracts is possible. It should be emphasised that content within the individual structural elements should be adapted to suit the different areas of sciences. Future research work related to the components of abstract should be focused mainly on adapting individual structural elements to different areas of sciences

British library and information schools: The research of the Department of Information Science, City University London by David Bawden( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The papers in this e-book reflect the research and scholarly interests of the staff of the Department of Information Science at City University London. One theme emerges strongly: the continued vitality and variety of the information science discipline. The traditional concerns of the department are well-represented in several papers: healthcare and scientific information (Khudair and Bawden; Robinson); information retrieval (MacFarlane; MacFarlane, McCann and Robertson); information organization (Rafferty and Hidderley); and legal and policy issues (Eisenschitz). These are complemented by newer strands of the department's activities: geographic information (Mountain and Liarokapis); information history (Weller), and discourse analysis (Haider)
