Abstract Development

Excellence in Nutrition Research and Practice


An abstract is a short, powerful summary of your research that serves as the first step in further dissemination of your work. It describes the objectives of the study, methods used, major results and interpretation and implications of the results. Abstracts often appear at the beginning of a full-length research paper or may be published as part of a professional meeting. Currently, the American Society for Nutrition has two major meetings where abstracts are presented: the ASN Scientific Sessions and EB and ASN's annual Advances and Controversies in Clinical Nutrition conference.
