Abstracting is the activity of representing the most important information of a text in a text that is shorter than the original from a pre-defined viewpoint. To put it simply, it is the writing of abstracts, including the writing of author abstracts and abstracts produced by someone who is not the author of the original text. We also have to give attention to the concept of the abstractor. The abstractor is a person who produces abstracts. There are two main types of abstractor: 28 Definitions authors of primary texts; professional abstractors.

They are consequently able to make it unnecessary for the user to consult the original for further information (Ashworth, 1973; Cleveland and Cleveland, 1983; Cross and Oppenheim, 2006). Informative abstracts thus have the dual function of aiding the assessment of document relevance and serving as substitutes for the original.
