Summary Writing

A summary is a condensation of the main ideas in an article or in a section of someone else's writing. A summary may stand alone, for example as a similar piece of writing to an abstract. Or it may simply form a section within a longer piece of your writing. The aim of a summary is to give your readers a clear, objective, accurate and balanced account of an article they may, or may not, have not read, and to put it into the context of your own work.

Summarising therefore is a skill that involves picking out the key ideas in someone else's writing and linking them up in your own words.
