Writing abstracts?
Hi,
I note that next to items in PhilPapers with an empty abstract field there is a "fix it" link, which allows one to enter an abstract.

Is it intended that this should only be filled by an abstract written by the author of the piece?  Or would it be useful/helpful to have abstracts written by others when the field is otherwise empty?

Kind regards

Simon

Hi Simon, thanks for your question. This field is meant to contain only the official abstract. In the limit case an abstract written by the author after publication is OK.
