Abstract Review

Abstract Review Appointments

Conceptualizing your final abstract for your capstone paper can be challenging. As a student, you can schedule an individual 30-minute abstract review appointment with a ORDS methodologist. Note, that the abstract reviewer will be reviewing your paper against the abstract criteria. The final CAO reviewer may find additional issues beyond the ones identified in the abstract review appointment. 

The best time for scheduling your appointment would be when you submit your full doctoral study or dissertation for URR review.
