We invite you to submit an abstract and take advantage of the opportunity to have your work peer-reviewed by experts in the field. If accepted, your abstract will be published in an online supplement of Arthritis & Rheumatism and presented at an international venue during the 2013 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in San Diego from October 25–30.
Here are seven tips to assist you in the abstract submission process:
- Download and read the 2013 Call for Abstracts brochure at www.ACRannualmeeting.org/abstracts to review all guidelines and rules that apply prior to beginning the online abstract submission process. The online system is simple and allows you to save, view, and update your submission at any time before the deadline.
- Avoid missing any notification e-mails from the ACR by adding ACR@confex.com to your contact list.
- Use mixed case instead of all caps in the abstract title. Do not use acronyms or symbols, including periods, in the abstract title. Example: This Is a Properly Formatted Abstract Title
- The maximum character count for abstract submissions is 2,750 characters, which excludes the title, names of authors/co-authors, authors’ affiliations, spacing, and disclosures. Each uploaded table and/or graphic file will decrease the character count by 250 characters from the total limit allowed. There is a limit of three uploads per abstract submission.
- Make sure that your figure/table/graph/chart is large enough that it can be reduced to 3.25” width x 8.5” height and still be legible.
- Use a common font type such as Arial, Calibri, or Helvetica when composing the body of your abstract to avoid reformatting issues.
- Complete your abstract submission before the deadline date to avoid unforeseen technical issues or other errors. Keep in mind that you will not have access to the abstract submission site after it closes on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 12 PM ET.
