Sample text

The question of the lack of linguistic abilities is slightly different. Native speakers of English are in a fortunate situation as this language is usually sufficient to be able to follow the published record of science and be published internationally. Those whose mother tongue is not English have to decide whether to learn foreign languages other than English. If researchers encounter articles that are of interest to them and available in a foreign language of which they do not have command, they can either ignore them or use abstracts to obtain part of the information they require.

In the process of abstracting, the influence of the recipient (addressee) on the primary text is weakened. In other words, the process of abstracting is characterised by a neutralisation of the recipient of the message. In metaphoric terms, we can also say that the recipient is confined to the boundaries of the abstract and the message addressed to this recipient remains enclosed in the text. It can be also said that abstracting communication occurs not between subject and recipient, but is transformed into a relationship between subject and object (that is abstractor and primary text).

Absolute documentational objectivity means that the abstract contains only information that appears in the original. It should add no new information but simply summarise the original content (Kilborn, 1998). Nor should abstracts disagree with the text of the article (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, 1982). The requirement to observe absolute documentational objectivity is in many cases left out of consideration, especially in author abstracts, even if the 1997 ANSI standard expressly forbids the inclusion of information or claims not contained in the document itself (ANSI, 1997).
