Abstract

INTRODUCTION Abstract gives first impression of document that follows and offers instant scholarly credibility to direct and indirect stakeholders of that document. AIM/PURPOSE We aimed to determine quality standard adherence of nineteen (19) maiden abstracts already published in the editorial space of International Journal of Computer Networks and Applications (IJCNA) using “IMRAD” guiding rule as barometer. METHOD We conducted appraisal using abstracts in IJCNA database. Nineteen maiden papers were assessed using internationally accepted IMRAD guiding rule for journal writings and used MS-Excel for statistical analysis due to seize of data. RESULTS We found 47%, representing 9-papers adhering to the IMRAD rules for scientific writing guide. We also discovered 53%, representing 10-papers presenting their abstracts as in humanities guide. CONCLUSION In our conclusion, authors are responsible to adhere to the rules of the game and present quality standard abstracts to uphold their own credibility in academic publishing. RECOMMENDATION The editorial board has to update author guidelines to clearly spell-out IMRAD components expected in scientific/informative abstracts submissions, irrespective of the paper type.
