Guidelines for Abstract Submission

These guidelines are not official requirements for acceptance, but are in place to ensure that your abstract is formatted and printed properly in the program brochure.

Titles and Authors   

The title should be brief, clearly indicating the nature of the study.  Do not use abbreviations in the abstract title.  PLEASE USE TITLE CASE.  State all authors’ initials and last names, (presenting author first), including the name of the faculty sponsor of the research, other major contributors, and the Department or Institution in which the work was done.  Underline presenting author only. After presenting author’s name, state degree sought and School or Program. i.e. for Alicia C. Brown, Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate School,  AC Brown, (Ph.D., GS). 


Organize the body of the abstract to include a purpose of study, methods used, summary of results, and conclusions reached.  Do not skip a line between the title and body of the abstract.  Indent the first line of text five spaces.  


Abbreviations should conform to the Style Manual for Biological Journals (American Institute for Biological Sciences, 3900 Wisconsin Ave., Washington, DC  20016). Place nonstandard abbreviations in parentheses after the full word the first time it appears.  Abstracts MUST be submitted online.
