S1. Ep.5 - Dissecting Purposes

Abstracts are effective ways to communicate a research article or report's main contents, but abstracts also provide us with more subtle information about the intended audience, the research purpose, and the construction of ideas. Niklas and Clay break down an abstract to show you how deeper analysis can highlight important information useful to us as readers and writers.

Read along and form your own opinion of the article:

Cheng, V. C., Lau, S. K., Woo, P. C., & Yuen, K. Y. (2007). Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus as an agent of emerging and reemerging infection. Clinical microbiology reviews20(4), 660-694.
