Abstract Submission

Submission Closed

Submission Guidelines

Original Work: Each abstract should represent complete and original results. Submitting multiple abstracts based on the same data is not permitted. Research that has been presented or published prior to the time of presentation at the 25th Annual Conference will not be considered.

Official Language: Abstracts must be submitted and presented in English, the official language of the ISOQOL 25th Annual Conference.

Submission Method: Only electronic submissions will be considered for review.

Supported Browsers: Please use one of the following browsers to submit your abstract: Internet Explorer 11, Firefox (current version), Chrome (current version) Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari 7 and above.

Session Timeout: Inactivity of more than 120 minutes on the same page will result in a session time out. Please save your pages intermittently to avoid loss of data.

Sentence Case: Do not submit abstracts in all capital letters. Abstracts (including titles) should be submitted in sentence case.

Word Limit: 350 words. Word count is calculated as the cumulative number of words in the Aims, Methods, Results, Conclusions and Funding Source sections. Abstract title and supporting graphs or figures are not included in the total word count.

Remove identifiers: Ensure that there are no indicators of authors names throughout the abstract submission and uploads (if applicable), to ensure a true double-blind peer review process.

Proofread: The information provided in the submission will be published exactly as submitted. In some cases, special characters and formatting do not transfer if the abstract is pasted into the submission fields from a word processing program. Common examples of this include missing apostrophes, ampersands, and trademark symbols. In some instances, these characters will have to be added individually using keyboard shortcut "alt" codes. ISOQOL will not be responsible for incorrect symbols or special characters in your abstract.

Incomplete submissions: Incomplete submissions/abstracts (draft status) will not be considered for review.

Submission Edits: You may revisit the site up until the posted deadline to edit your submission.

Presenter Restrictions: A maximum of two abstracts may be submitted by any one presenting author. Only one oral presentation will be permitted per presenting author.
