# One-column abstract in KOMA-script

I would like to make the abstract in KOMA Article appear on both columns, when writing a two column article. I would like to use internal koma options, instead of loading external packages. The following code sample works for me, but it is only to demonstrate what I want, not what I really want (which is not to use external packages like the abstract package)

\documentclass[twoside=false,
twocolumn=true,
a4paper,
10pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{lastpage}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{abstract}

%opening
\title{Some Magnificant Article}
\author{Dr Brainy}

\begin{document}
\twocolumn[
\maketitle
\begin{onecolabstract}
Here is which one-column abstract resides
trying lipsum does not work here
\end{onecolabstract}
]

\tableofcontents

\section{introduction}
\lipsum

\section{method}
\subsection{mptre}
\subsubsection{aasdasd}
\section{results}
\end{document}

The abstract package documentation shows the standard way of doing this without using the package:

\makeatletter
\twocolumn[
\begin{@twocolumnfalse}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
This is a two column abstract. It will stretch over two columns.
\end{abstract}
\end{@twocolumnfalse}
]
\makeatother


It's not clear you gain much from not using the package, though.
