Abstract Preparation and Submission
Goal: To present a concise yet complete description of the study question, methodology and results. Abstract structure should have 5 or 6 sections for clarity:
Text: Please use complete sentences and proper grammar. Use paragraph divisions for the sections - one long run-on paragraph is difficult to read.
Data: This is best presented, or augmented, by the inclusion of a table or figure. Ensure data is legible.
Conclusions: Be cautious and reasonable, avoid the trap of the statement. Similarly, a zero numerator demands the calculation of confidence intervals and great caution in interpretation.
Case Report or Case series: Novel case reports with a discussion and lessons learned have higher chances of acceptance.
Citations and references: Not more than 3-5 references are necessary. Cite previous work if applicable and also cite assertions about facts that may not be commonly accepted.
Prior to submission: Proofread abstract and have an experienced colleague/mentor proof read and critique the abstract. This will improve the quality of the abstract and increase chances of acceptance.
