Abstract and Journal Selection
OVERVIEW: This is a two-part assignment. For part one, you will need to write an abstract for your seminar paper (the literary research essay for this course). the book is William Faulkner`s As I lay Dying.
The abstract should include the authors and texts under study in your paper, the framing, and your thesis. You can read more about abstracts in the Assignments Module. For part two, you will find an academic, peer-reviewed journal that would be an appropriate outlet for your essay (after revisions!). You`ll need to do some basic research about how you would submit to the journal, as well.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION: To complete the assignment successfully, your submission must include the following:
Part One: You will need to write and submit a 250-300 word abstract for your literary research essay. The abstract should identify the text(s) and author(s) under study, lay out your tentative thesis, and summarize the general development and framing of your argument. I encourage you to submit a draft of your abstract before the due date. This abstract needs to be written this semester and for this class. Abstracts written for other classes (previous or current) will not be accepted.
Part Two: Below your abstract, you will also need to identify a reputable, academic, literary journal that would be appropriate for your essay were you to expand this essay into an article. For the journal, you will need to provide
a brief (3-5 sentence) synopsis of the journal, including information on the journal`s range of subjects (be sure to use your own words or to cite responsibly);
a summary of the general submission guidelines (length, method, etc.); and,
if possible, the journal`s rate of acceptance.
ASSESSMENT: Your presentation will be assessed on the following:
the accuracy of the information;
the extent to which the submission meets the assignment criteria outlined above;
the professionalism of the submission;
the appropriateness and relevancy of the projected title (this would be "Abstract of [title of your paper]");
the inclusion of a cogent, valid argument and a clear thesis that articulates that argument;
the inclusion of clear, appropriate, and relevant framing of the argument (what does the reader need to know about your projected argument?);
the journal information indicated in the assignment description;
the absence of typos and the use of standard grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors; and
correct MLA format.
