Are there any guidelines for summary writing

1. Read the whole of the original text quickly to gain an impression of its content and its relevance to your work

2. Highlight the main points as you read

3. Make notes of your own on these points

4. Put away the original and rewrite your notes in your own words in complete sentences

5. Begin your summary with a statement of the main idea at the start. Don't forget to include referencing of your source.

6. Using your notes, write out your subsidiary or supporting points in coherent, well-connected sentences

7. Re-read your work to check that you have included all the information that you need.
