The guidelines for submitting abstracts to the MUSC Global Health Week poster session are as follows. Abstracts are welcome in all areas of global health and must be in narrative form, with a maximum word count of 300 words (excluding the abstract title). The submitting author is expected to attend the event and present the poster, and must obtain pre-approval from any co-authors prior to submitting the abstract. The abstract should be organized, concise, clear, and well-written, and should include the problem being addressed and the approach to the problem, with preliminary results suggested but not required.
In order for the abstract to be accepted, authors must clearly establish the connection between their work and outcomes related to global health, if it is not obvious. A committee will evaluate submissions based on their originality, presentation, relevance, quality, and clarity, and will recommend which submissions should be included in the poster session. Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 29, and detailed instructions on poster preparation will be sent with the abstract acceptance notice.
Overall, abstract submissions should adhere to the guidelines and ensure that their work is connected to outcomes related to global health. The evaluation process will consider various factors to determine which submissions will be included in the poster session, and authors will be notified of the acceptance status by a specific date. Additionally, further instructions on poster preparation will be provided to authors upon acceptance.
