You need to edit the file 'default.xml' file, which resides in the 
following dir:

/eprints_installation_dir//archives/iisceprints/cfg/workflows/eprint

You'll find the following line in the 'default.xml' file:

<component><field ref="abstract"/></component>

Change it to:

<component><field ref="abstract" required="yes"/></component>

Finally, reload the config files.

HTH.
