Seven key points towards a successful abstract submission!
Follow these steps to make the most of your submission
- Read the guidelines! They are only 2 pages long and present key information.
- The reviewers’ first score is for originality. If you’re presenting novel work, start the abstract with “this is the first….”or “this original…”.
- The next criterion is scientific merit. Your abstract must demonstrate your study to be scientifically sound.
- Choice of key words very important to ensure that your abstract is reviewed by someone in your discipline.
- Lack of anonymity is automatic disqualification. Do not mention your name or the name of your clinic or university.
- For non-English speaking writers we recommend having your submission reviewed by someone who knows English well before submission.
- Don’t split results across several abstracts. Conclusions should be consistent with results.
