Call For Papers
To submit a paper, go to http://aaep2013.abstractcentral.com. All papers must be submitted online by March 15, 2013, 3:00 p.m. ET and adhere to the Instructions for Authors.
A few key points:
1. Products and equipment must be identified by chemical or generic names or descriptions and footnoted.
2. Due to the length and complexity of the process, all deadlines are strictly enforced.
3. Submission of a paper represents a commitment to present this paper at the meeting if it is selected.
4. Selected scientific papers, “how to” papers, and review papers will be printed in the 2013 AAEP Proceedings and presented at the 2013 Annual Convention. The presenting author will receive complimentary registration and a travel allowance.
1. Authors are expected to disclose the nature of any financial interests they have with companies that manufacture or sell products that figure prominently in the submitted paper or with companies that manufacture or sell competing products. (This includes ownership, employment, consultancy arrangements, or service as an officer or board member.)
2. If your presentation references the use of a compounded pharmaceutical, please be certain that you are familiar with the FDA guidelines on the use of compounded pharmaceuticals and that the product you reference is in compliance.
3. All AAEP abstracts submitted for presentation should also cite levels of evidence-based medicine.
When giving your presentation at the convention, you should plan to include any ethical considerations as part of your presentation.
Types of papers accepted:
Scientific paper presentations are limited to 20 minutes each plus 5 minutes for Q&A during the program and should be a minimum of 600 words. Special attention will be given by the Educational Programs Committee to material with practical content or new information.
“How to” papers are limited to 15 minutes each plus 5 minutes for Q&A and are presented to describe and explain a technique or procedure used in veterinary medicine or the equine industry. The technique should be relatively new or not widely understood or used in practice. There is no word limit for “how to” papers.
Review papers are limited to 20 minutes each plus 5 minutes for Q&A and are presented for the purpose of updating the membership on a new subject or for gathering information that may be conflicting. Although a review paper does not necessarily contain original data, it is anticipated that the presenter will be someone with considerable experience in the field.
Abstracts < 250 words are limited to 20 minutes plus 5 minutes for Q&A. Authors who intend to publish in a refereed journal may submit an abstract < 250 words. An abstract conforming to the AAEP guidelines to authors must also be submitted (for review purposes only) to allow the reviewers to assess the experimental design, materials and methods, statistical analyses, results (with graphs, tables, charts, etc.) and a discussion of the results as it pertains to interpretation and conclusions.
Business Education - AAEP realizes the importance of institutionalizing personal wellness and professional development as part of their continuing education offerings.
EVJ/AAEP Supplement 2013 - In 2013, AAEP will partner with EVJ to publish manuscripts from presentations made at the Annual Convention. In order to have their papers considered for publication in the Supplement and as an oral presentation at the AAEP Convention, authors must submit a full manuscript to EVJ and a separate abstract of the work to AAEP. The deadline for receipt of the full manuscript at EVJ is February 16, 2013; the deadline for receipt of abstracts for presentation at the AAEP is March 15, 2013, 3pm ET.
Author guidelines for submitting an abstract to AAEP: “Abstracts < 250 Words: Guidelines for Authors”.
Authors must specify that their abstract is being submitted for the “AAEP/EVJ 2013 Supplement”.
