Dear readers
This is a very common mistake done by everyone while doing research/project, that we do not understand what is the difference between Abstract and Synopsis.
So, here I am giving you the four major differences which help you all o understand the difference between two.

1. An abstract is a brief summary of the research article, thesis, review or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject. 1. A synopsis is a brief summary of the major point of a subject or written work, either as prose or table.
2. An abstract is most commonly used in the scientific context. It is typically a formal requirement for publication.2. The synopsis could be exchanged directly for a summary in most contexts. It has a slightly more formal feel and shows up in the literature and the arts a bit more frequently than other contexts.
3. An Abstract normally provides the main focus, purpose, method, results & conclusion. 3. The synopsis summarizes the main points of a text.
4. An Abstract is provided as an introduction to a text, thesis or paper usually just after the title page but before the table of content. It is very short usually just a paragraph.4. The synopsis is usually separate from the full text itself. In some uses, the term synopsis is synonymous with an abstract, but the two have separate aims.

Please add your point in the comment.
