Abstract Review Process
Abstracts will be peer reviewed for presentation at the 2013 Research Forum. Abstracts will be accepted that are judged scientifically valid and that yield important information which will ultimately affect patient care. Abstracts submitted or the resultant manuscripts must not appear in a referenced journal before publication of the meeting abstracts in the October 2013 issue of Annals and must not have been presented at a national meeting.
Abstracts will be reviewed for oral or poster presentation. Oral presentations will be allowed 10 minutes followed by discussion. Poster presentations will be grouped by topic and will be scheduled during the program.
The Research Committee will review abstracts blinded to authors. Notification letters will be mailed on or before July 1, 2013. We regret that we cannot give notification information by telephone.
The Emergency Medicine Foundation will present an award to the outstanding established researcher and a special award to an outstanding young investigator.
An annual Excellence in Research Award (Best Paper) will be presented to an investigator based on the abstract, presentation, discussion, and subsequent of research manuscript.
An annual Best Presentation by a Young Investigator Award will also be chosen. Investigators at the assistant professor level or below with fewer than five years of faculty appointment may request that their abstracts be considered for review in the young investigator category.
The ACEP Research Committee will also present awards for best medical student paper and best resident paper.
The Best Medical Student Paper Award will be given to a medical student who is the primary investigator of an outstanding abstract presentation.
The Best Resident Paper Award will be given to a resident who is the primary investigator of an outstanding abstract presentation.
All four awards will be presented at the 2014 ACEP Research Forum.
