Here is what the Purdue Online Writing Lab says about executive summaries: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/726/07/
This is pretty vague, so I went looking for a writing guide for the sciences. In our ebrary database which you can access through the library's home page under Find Databases > Most Popular Databases. We have a book titled "Designing and Conducting Health System Research Projects, Volume 2 : Data Analyses and Report Writing"
Once in ebrary you can search on the title: "Designing and Conducting Health System Research Projects" then find volume 2. In this book's Table of Contents look in Module 32 on Report Writing page through until you find part 2 and summaries will be listed with an explanation of how to write a summary.
If my assumption of a science based report is wrong, please let me know, and I can find you a writing guide for another type of discipline.
