10 key points towards a successful abstract submission!
Follow these steps to make the most of your submission!
- Read the submission rules! They are only 2 pages long and present key information.
- Lack of anonymity is automatic disqualification. Do not mention your name or the name of your clinic or university anywhere in your abstract text.
- 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.
- The methods of your abstract are scrupulously reviewed - make sure its a randomised trial or a well set up systematic review.
- Don’t split the results across several abstracts. Give absolute results and relative numbers.
- Ensure your conclusion responds to the question in your aims and is consistent with the results.
- Select the correct category and key words to ensure that your abstract is reviewed by someone in your discipline.
- For non-English speaking writers we recommend having your submission reviewed by someone who knows English well before submission.
- Make sure you use the correct and up to date ICS terminology. The use of obsolete terminology may cause rejection.
