I've been offered some work editing abstracts of technical papers. In most
cases I won't have the full text of the paper--just the abstract. It seems
I have to "jazz" these abstracts up and make them sound interesting.

I'd appreciate any insights or experiences from people who have done this
kind of work. I'm a bit puzzled about how I can know if the abstract truly
reflects what is in the paper, if I don't have the paper.
