ASiT takes a serious view of research governance. The material contained within a submitted paper must not have been previously published or presented at any major meeting. Previous presentation at hospital, medical school, local or regional meetings is acceptable provided the abstract has not previously been published following this.

Please ensure that the abstract has been seen and agreed upon by all of the named authors before submission. All authors have a responsibility to ensure that the data submitted is accurate, is not extrapolated and fairly represents the presentation to be given at the Association’s Annual Meeting. Commercial support and industry involvement must be clearly stated. General advice about authorship, conflicts of interest, redundant publication and patient confidentiality in medical publishing can be found on the British Medical Journal website:

  1. The abstract should be no longer than 250 words (not including the title). It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep to the word limit. Unless it is a case report, abstracts should be formatted in four sections as follows: Aim, Method, Results, Conclusions

  2. Abstracts are to be submitted as text only. No graphics or tables are allowed.

  3. Abstracts are welcome on any subject in the field of surgery. The work should be original and not previously published in abstract or paper form prior to submission or submitted to any major meeting previously.

  4. Please use a spell checker on your abstract before submitting it. 

  5. All areas of the form must be completed; failure to do so will result in the form being rejected or your browser returning an error.

  6. Author details or institutional affiliation must not be identifiable in the abstract text. Failure to do so will result in the abstract being rejected

  7. It is your responsibility to ensure the information you provide is correct and to check the content of your abstract and especially contact information. We cannot be held responsible for abstracts not being graded due to missing content or for failure to notify successful authors of abstract acceptance if forms are filled incorrectly.

  8. Once completed and submitted electronically you cannot submit the same abstract again – make sure the first one is correct! You can, however, edit the submission up to the closing time of submission.

  9. Please ensure your e-mail address is correct as you will be notified by e-mail if your abstract has been accepted.

  10. Abstracts can only be submitted in ONE topic area. Duplicate submissions will be disqualified.

  11. Evidence of falsification of results, plagiarism and/or misrepresentation will be treated as professional misconduct and will be reported to your Deanery and/or GMC for further investigation.

  12. Case reports must ONLY be submitted under the ‘case report’ abstract submission category. Case report submitted under other categories will not be considered.

  13. After the submission deadline, no changes to abstracts will be accepted.

Please note: the person registering and submitting the abstract online will receive all future correspondence regarding that abstract. It is therefore not advisable to submit abstracts on behalf of colleagues. The author who intends to present the abstract should complete the online submission.
