abstract should include:

I. Bibliography Citation
A. Author, “Title of Article”, Title of Periodical, date, page number(s).

II. Body (in your own words)

Abstracts are to come from a current journal or periodical, (3 years old or newer) not a textbook or other reference book (topic related to safety inspection). Abstracts must be typed double-spaced with 1″ margins. No fonts larger than 12 point are to be used. Abstracts should be 1-1/2 to 2 pages in length. Neatness (spelling grammar, appearance) counts. Do not use a cover sheet. Any variation from the above format will result in loss of points. Abstracts may be graded by for grammar and spelling
