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.

Join your ASN colleagues for a webinar Thursday, October 29 at 1:00 pm ET, that will review general guidelines for reviewing abstracts using the ASN score system developed ASN volunteer leaders. Our speakers not only have experience reviewing abstracts but also helped develop the system ASN put in place.

Additional handouts: Abstract review score excel file .Please sign up to be an abstract reviewer using this form: Abstract Review Sign-Up Form.Please choose 1 to 2 categories based on your areas of expertise. Reviewers typically receive up to 15 abstracts to review per category. Thus, if you sign up to review more than one category, you likely will be assigned to review more than 15 abstracts. Ideally, we would like to have 3-4 reviewers per abstract. Students are not eligible to review abstracts. Scores are used for RIS and Council Awards as well as Minisymposia planning.
