Research Forum 2020 Abstracts - Annals Supplement

Abstract Review Process

Abstracts will be peer reviewed for presentation at the 2021 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 2021 issue of Annals. Case reports or subject reviews are not considered original research.

The Research Committee and ad hoc reviewers will review abstracts blinded to authors. Notification will be sent in July 2021. We regret that we cannot give notification information by telephone. 

The top abstracts will be selected for presentation in plenary-type sessions. Other accepted abstracts will be presented with more details to come.

Research Forum Medical Student Scholar Program

The Research Forum Medical Student Scholar Program is a unique volunteer opportunity for medical students interested in research.  Scholars assist throughout the Research Forum with social media promotion and help speakers and moderators during the abstract presentations (ie, trouble shooting A/V, recording audience questions, etc.). Scholars receive a certificate of appreciation from the ACEP President and are encouraged to include the experience on their CV. 

If you are interested in participating, please submit your current CV and no more than 500 word statement on why you want to participate to academicaffairs@acep.org.

Deadline: June 30, 2021

 

Awards

To be considered for any of the awards listed, you must be the corresponding author for the abstract submission and the presenter of the abstract at the Research Forum.

The Emergency Medicine Foundation will present an award to the outstanding established researcher and a special award to an outstanding young investigator.

  • The annual Excellence in Research Award (Best Paper) will be presented to an investigator based on the abstract, presentation, discussion, and subsequent research manuscript.
  • The 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 2021 ACEP Research Forum.
