The Abstract is an encapsulated summary of your research. It should begin with a statement outlining the problem that you investigated. It should briefly describe the methods you used to generate data, and it should summarize the paper's main findings regarding the speed and locomotion of dinosaurs. The abstract can be no more than 250 words in length (and I will count, so be sure you don't exceed this limit). Generally speaking, it pays to write this section of a paper last, after everything else is done and you have a good idea of all aspects of the paper.
