To do this, the introduction contains a brief literature review to describe previous research conducted on the problem, and to explain how the current experiment will help to clarify or expand the knowledge. The introduction should end with a purpose statement (sometimes in the form of a hypothesis or null hypothesis): one sentence which speciﬁcally states the question your experiment was designed to answer.
The material in the abstract is written in the same order as that within the paper, and has the same emphasis. An effective abstract should include a sentence or two summarizing the highlights from each of the sections: introduction (including purpose), methods, results, and discussion. To reﬂect the content (especially results and conclusions) of the paper accurately, the abstract should be written after the ﬁnal draft of your paper is complete, although it is placed at the beginning of the paper.
