The UVic Writer's Guide
To reduce explanation and illustration to the essential minimum:
- Omit passages that restate a point for clarity or emphasis.
- Drastically condense lengthy details, examples, statistics--but
do not omit information or examples that are necessary to a clear
understanding of the summarized work.
- Be specific whenever possible.
