Quick Tips for Submitting Your Abstract

What is an Abstract?

  • Describes an unpublished research study, method, protocol, or case study.
  • Presents complex information in a clear, concise manner.

Why Submit?

  • Communicate your work to others.
  • Get recognition through ASN’s many abstract awards programs.
  • Meet new collaborators.

Title

  • Try to develop a title that is concise and creative. 

Objective

  • The first part of your abstract is the study’s objective or aim – or your hypothesis. What gap is your research filling?  

Methods

  • Next, provide a clear, concise description of what you did to get your results.  

Results

  • Clearly state your results. What did the study find?  
  • Saying that “results will be presented at the meeting” is not acceptable. One caveat: An abstract focused on a method or protocol may not have results – and that is ok. 
  • Tables or figures cannot be submitted with an abstract. 

Conclusions

  • State conclusions that are reflective of your data and supported by analysis.
  • Discuss any practical implications or review the significance or novelty of the research.  

Review

  • Your abstract will be reviewed and rated on four key parts – Objective, Methods, Results and Conclusions. 
  • Your abstract must be no more than 2,000 characters – not including spaces.  
  • Make sure your abstract reads well and has no typos.  
  • Ask a colleague to review it before you submit.  

Funding Sources 

  • You will also be asked to provide the funding sources – the organizations, institutions, or agencies – for the research included in the abstract.  
  • Grant numbers should not be included in the abstract as this could impact the efficacy of a blinded abstract review process.
