​For Scientific Abstract

Title: The title should be brief (limited to 15 words or less).

Authors: The first and last names of the authors will be included in the author block.  Do not include degrees, as this affects online search functions.  Up to 5 authors can be listed.

Institutions: Institutions of all authors will be included.  Do not include departments.

Text: The abstract must be informative, including a statement of the study's specific PURPOSE, METHODS, summary of RESULTS, and CONCLUSION statement using these headings.  It is unsatisfactory to state, "The results will be discussed."

Abstracts of experimental studies must include data to substantiate the conclusions being drawn.  It is not satisfactory to simply describe what was found verbally in general terms.  The lack of inclusion of experimental data may result in the abstract being rejected.
