General Information
One author can submit maximum 5 abstracts for poster or oral presentations or full-texts of correspondence letter or research proposals for oral presentations.

Step 1: Abstract Information
A maximum of 200 characters typed in lower-case letters, except for abbreviations and study names. Please be careful that your title is not truncated if you copy and paste it into the field.  Please include authors, institutions, city names, trademarks, and abbreviations in the title.

At the time of abstract submission, the submitter must select  at least one maximum of 5 topics to index the abstract.
It is important to carefully select the best matching topic as this choice will determine under which area the abstract will be reviewed and graded.

You must select one of the following categories ( study design ) under which your abstract can be best classified :

Case report / Case Series
Comparative Case series 
Case-Control / Nested Case-Control
Cohorts / Retrospective Cohorts

Correspondence Letter
Clinical Trials / Randomized Clinical Trials

Survey with High Response Rate / Cross-Sectional
Cost-Effectiveness Analysis
Decision Analysis
Study of Screening and Diagnostic Tests
​Translational Research, 
Animal experiments
Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis

Guideline for Correspondence Letters

Letters discussing a recent article in this journal should be submitted within maximum 1 year of the article's publication in print.
400 words, ≤5 references (1 of which should be to the recent article),  ≤3 authors
For further info:

You may choose to submit your abstract under one of the following options: 
Funding acknowledgments
All sources of financial support (including government grants) for this research must be filed under this heading and not in the abstract text. All grant funding agency abbreviations should be spelled out. This information will be published in the abstract itself.
The submitter is asked to indicate the type of funding source(s) and name it/them if any.
This information may be used in the context of MedicReS research projects.​

Step 2: Abstract Authors and Institutions
Your abstract must list at least one author to be submitted.

Authors' list
Please note that the first author should be the abstract presenter by default. Nevertheless, it can be modified through the agreement form available online as of May 2020. In all cases, the presenter must be part of the authors' list included in the submitted abstract and be able to explain during the presentation his/her role in the research. You may enter up to 15 authors in the authors' list, including the presenter. If you have more than 15 authors, you can use the 'On behalf of' field (see above) to enter the name of an investigating team/study group.
The names of authors will be published as listed on the submission form. Please make sure you have entered the full list of authors - official contributors in the research submitted - and that the information given for each author is correct because no changes will be possible after the abstract is submitted (see paragraph on changes and corrections above).
The authors’ order and details (names, cities, country codes) will be published, as entered by the submitter.
The submitter certifies and warrants to the MedicReS that the list of authors is complete and that he/she has permission from all persons he/she enters as co-authors to be listed in this abstract and that they are aware that their names will appear in all publications.
If none of the authors is able to present the abstract during the congress, the abstract should be withdrawn. If not, it will be considered as a 'no-show' and the MedicReS Congress Programme Committee can then decide not to consider an abstract submitted by the same author the following year.

This is a mandatory step.

You will be requested to select your institution when you create the presenter and the authors. Once you have entered your city, a list will automatically appear from which you can select your institution.
If your institution is not on the list, you have the possibility of creating it.
If your city is not on the list, please enter it, press 'enter's, and then add your institution.

Step 3: Abstract Content
All abstracts must be submitted (and will be presented) in English.
Abstracts must contain original material neither published nor presented elsewhere (in print or electronically) prior to MedicReS Congress 2020.
Abstracts submitted on animal studies must follow the 'principles of laboratory animal care' (NIH Publication No. 85-23, revised 1985),  according to the national law, if applicable.
Do not cut and paste symbols into your text. Use the symbols provided when you click on the omega button (Ω).
We recommend you structure your abstract using the following headings:

Background / Introduction
Purpose ,Methods, Results ,Conclusion(s)

There is not a specific maximum of words, but rather a maximum total size for the abstracts (shown as 100%), including the text with spaces and tables (if any). The maximum abstract size is 35 lines (3,000 characters).
Use the 'save' and 'refresh' buttons at the bottom in order to display the size of the abstract in percentage terms (shown on the left of the screen). The program converts the size into a percentage when you save it as a draft.
The character limit does not include the title and authors. Only the abstract text, tables, and spaces are considered.

Abstract table for only poster presentations
The table field holds a table without surrounding text. Do not copy your table into the field. You must recreate your table using the tools provided.
The maximum size of the table is 12 columns and 20 rows, and you can only enter one table. The title field is optional.
In addition to your text, you can add a picture.

Abstract picture for only poster presentations
Your picture file must meet the following criteria:
Format:Jpeg or.GIF
Size: less than 1 MB
Measures no larger than 800 pixels(x) x 600 pixels(y)
Please make sure that your picture is readable on the abstract preview (this represents how it will look in all publications). You can only enter one picture, and the title field is optional.
Important: As the grading and selection process is blind, the title and body text must not contain identifying features, i.e. information such as:
Names (authors or others)
Names of the institutes (hospitals, medical schools, clinics…)
Also not authorized
Trademarks. The use of commercial drug names, brands, and registered trademarks is strictly prohibited. Instead, use generic drug names. Drugs should be referred to by their active substances or pharmacological designations.
Company names and locations.
Websites and email addresses.
Failure to comply with the above requirements will/may lead to automatic rejection of the submission, or this information may be deleted by the abstract services, and some rephrasing may occur.
Furthermore, the Abstract Reviewing Committee (graders) is required to identify abstracts that pertain to the commercial promotion of a proprietary product and to notify the selection committee. 
Do not include grant acknowledgments in the abstract content. Use the appropriate field.
Do not cite keywords or references in the abstract, as they are not allowed and will be deleted.
Do not include copyright or trademark symbols.
Limit the use of acronyms and abbreviations. Define at first use with an acronym or abbreviation in parentheses.
Please note that any medical research involving human subjects must conform to the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association. We remind you that the patient’s photo should be not be used, and the patient must never be identifiable in your presentation.

Step 4: Abstract Preview and Submission
Proofread abstracts carefully to avoid errors before submission, check spelling and grammar. The abstract will be reviewed and published (if accepted) as it has been submitted – No Exceptions!
Do not forget to click on the 'submit' button to validate your abstract submission. After having submitted your abstract, you will receive an immediate automatic confirmation by email (please make sure to state your correct email address!) notifying you of the abstract number. Please use this reference in all correspondence. If you do not receive this confirmation, please contact the Abstract Team.
There is a limit to the number of abstracts ( 5 )  an author/individual may submit, but the same research cannot be submitted twice, even under a different topic/category or with a different title. If you submit two abstracts with the same content, the Abstract Submission Service will automatically keep the most recent abstract submitted and withdraw the other. Note that duplicate draft abstracts will not be deleted.

If you have difficulties in submitting your abstracts or if you need any further information, please contact the Abstract Team via medicres@gmail.com .

Abstract grading/results
All abstracts are blind and will be reviewed by seven to 10 members of the Abstract Reviewing Committee (graders). Each grader is selected by the MedicReS Congress Program Committee to review abstracts in the category that best fits their expertise.
Our intent is to be most inclusive of the quality science received without compromising scientific integrity.
The Abstract Reviewing Committee (graders) is required to identify abstracts that pertain to the commercial promotion of a proprietary product and to notify the selection committee.
Abstracts submitted for consideration must be an original idea, concept, or an improvement or revision of a previous idea. Submissions are peer-reviewed for scientific content, logical presentation, and current interest of the topic to the scientific community.
In July  2020, the final selection will be made by the MedicReS Congress Program Committee, which will determine the format, day and time of presentation for each abstract. No scheduling or changes will be possible.
Accepted abstracts will be scheduled either as oral presentations or Moderated Poster or half-day Poster Presentations.
All presentations will include questions and answers conducted in English. Presenters are expected to speak good English.
All abstract submitters will be notified by email in early August 2020 about the outcome (accepted or not accepted) of the review-and-selection process.  Please ensure that the email provided is accurate because all correspondence will be sent via email.
If the abstract is accepted, instructions and guidelines concerning the abstract presentation will be provided online. 
The same presenter cannot be assigned to more than five abstracts - co-authors should then be assigned as presenters.

No-show policy
Submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the author(s) to present the work if accepted. Failure to present and register for the congress, if not justified (withdrawn), will be identified as a 'no-show' and will jeopardize future acceptance of abstracts. In addition, abstracts identified as 'no-shows' will be removed from all congress publications (including MedicReS 365).

Publication of abstracts
All presented abstracts will be published in the Abstracts and Conference Proceedings Books of MedicReS
You consent to have authors’ names, affiliations and biographical material used in connection with the publication of your work.
Author(s) represents and warrants to the MedicReS that he/she/they is/are the sole author(s) of the work, that all authors have participated in and agree with the content and conclusions of the work, and that the work is original and does not infringe upon any copyright, proprietary, or personal right of any third party.
The submitter hereby affirms that the work submitted is original, except for extracts from copyrighted works fully authorized by the copyright holders and that all statements declared as facts are based on thorough examination and investigation for accuracy.
Submitted abstracts should not have been published in any other journals and/or online publications nor presented at any previous international congress. However, previous presentation at national meetings and/or non-cardiovascular specialists meetings does not disqualify.
A submitter, presenter or co-author submitting or presenting previously published work will lead to:
Withdrawal of their presentation from the press conference and/or scientific session.
Prohibition against submitting abstracts to any MedicReS congresses for one year.
Their submitting abstracts that must report new information not previously published or presented at a national or international scientific meeting prior to congress. Note that abstracts previously presented at meetings will not be accepted unless there is a substantial update of data.
Identified duplicates will be retracted from all related MedicReS publications.

However, if the abstract is accepted, the submitter agrees, on behalf of all co-authors, to transfer and assign to the MedicReS free of charge on a non-exclusive basis – for 15 years from the present submission – the rights to edit, publish, reproduce, reformat, distribute in whole or in part the abstract and to prepare all types of derivative works, such as press releases and/or educational products, using all communication tools and means, now known or hereinafter developed, including any and all digital means and any and all supports or forms of media now known or hereinafter developed, in particular all paper, analog, digital, numerical and electronic media, including Internet, Intranet and Extranet sites and social media. This includes use in indexes or search databases in print, electronic, or other media.
Author(s) retain the right, after presentation at the congress, to subsequently include the work in articles, books, or derivative works that he/she authors or edits, provided said use does not imply the endorsement of the MedicReS.
The submitter signs for all co-authors. He/she accepts responsibility for the present rules for submission and presentation on behalf of all co-authors.

Conflict of interest
The MedicReS Congress Program Committee requests that all presenters display a slide at the beginning of their presentations (at the bottom of the poster for Poster Presentations) indicating disclosure information for themselves and all co-authors, as applicable, or to indicate that they have nothing to disclose. Please state 'none' if no conflicts exist.
This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.
A potential conflict of interest may arise from various relationships, past or present, such as employment, consultancy, investments and stock ownership, funding for research, family relationships, etc.
All potential conflicts of interest must be stated.
This pertains to relationships with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, or other corporations whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the article. Such relationships include, but are not limited to, employment by an industrial concern, ownership of stock, membership on a standing advisory council or committee, being on the board of directors or being publicly associated with a company or its products. Other areas of a real or perceived conflict of interest could include receiving honoraria or consulting fees, or receiving grants or funds from such corporations or individuals representing such corporations.

MedicReS aims to educate researchers and provoke discussion about the good scientific method, statistics, ethics, publication, and education. Faced with stifling bureaucracy, competition for funds, and employer pressure to deliver results, finding the time and space to produce the best research can seem an arduous process. Events like the MedicReS world congress should help to emancipate researchers, refocusing them on the steps to ensure that their research is as rigorous as possible
