Detailed Question -

What is an implication for an abstract paper?

1 Answer to this question

Firstly, I believe what you mean is ‘the abstract of a paper’, rather than ‘an abstract paper’. An abstract is the very first part of the paper, even before the introduction, providing a summary of the paper. So, it is very short, about 250-300 words, though abstracts for social sciences and humanities papers may be a bit longer. You may learn more about abstracts through these resources:

Coming to implications, an implication implies, or suggests, what the findings of your study or research mean for the problem or population you studied or even a broader research area. It also suggests further directions to explore and investigate. You typically talk about the implications in the discussion section of the paper. As the abstract is a very short section, you need to write about only the most relevant implication in the abstract, in only one line or two.
