Here are some guidelines for writing your synopsis, and we have provided an example from PhD student Zhouhan Jin.
- write for a general audience-tell the purpose of the research
- highlight results-highlight practical applications
- use the active voice
- be concrete; avoid overly general sentences, e.g., "Implications are discussed."
- avoid technical language; don’t assume specialized disciplinary or methodological knowledge
- stay within the 75-word limit
Example of a well-written research publication synopsis:
I am a PhD student in Applied Linguistics and my research focus is on teaching and learning vocabulary in second language acquisition. This study investigated the effects of word learning through listening to teacher talk. Because words consist of both single words and multi-word items, both types of items were tested. In order to make learners pay attention to keywords, teachers often use their first language (L1) to translate word meanings or repeat the words several times during the class. Thus, the effect of L1 translation and word repetition on word learning were also examined.
