ACEP is accepting abstracts for the 2013 ACEP Research Forum until April 26. The Research Forum is Oct. 14-15, in Seattle, Wash., held in conjunction with ACEP’s annual meeting, and is dedicated to the promotion and presentation of original research related to emergency medicine by investigators in clinical and basic science. The following is a brief look at some of the abstract submission requirements:
Abstracts should represent original research that has not been published or presented at a national scientific meeting. Case reports and/or subject reviews are not considered original research. Abstracts presented at an international or regional meeting are acceptable.
Abstracts will be submitted online. Instructions will be available on ACEP’s website beginning in March, 2013. Abstracts must be received by 5 p.m. (CST), April 26, 2013.
Abstracts must include the following subsections, consistent in style with those appearing in the Annals of Emergency Medicine: title, study objectives, methods (include design, setting, type of participants), results, and conclusion. The abstract should be written in complete sentences using grammatically correct English. Spell out all abbreviations on first usage. Abstracts are limited to 3,000 characters, not including spaces. Accepted abstracts will be published as received; no copy editing will be performed.
Illustrations are discouraged; however, small tables may be accepted. Figures and photos must be black and white with at least 300 dpi. Authors should not be identified in any way on the page containing the abstract.
