Author Information

  1. Author Information

  2. The Corresponding (Submitting) Author is the individual who submits the abstract and is the contact person for all correspondence from AMP. The Corresponding Author does not need to be the senior author. The Corresponding Author has the following responsibilities:
    • verifies that all authors agree to the publication of the abstract in JMD.
    • verifies that all authors agree, and any supervisors have given permission, to the presentation of a scientific poster at the annual meeting.
    • responsible for notifying all other authors of acceptance, rejection, scheduling and any other information provided by AMP.
    • responsible for notifying the Presenting (First) Author of the AMP Rules for Poster Display and any other information provided by AMP. Young Investigator Award applicants are responsible for notifying their faculty mentors of the additional rules for poster display for award (see "AWARDS INFORMATION" section).
    • responsible for compliance with the AMP Scientific Integrity Policy.
  3. The First Author is also considered the Presenting Author (who may be the Corresponding Author) and has the following responsibilities:
    • expected to register for the Annual Meeting and attend the poster at the assigned time period to discuss the study and answer questions. If the Presenting Author is unable to attend the Annual Meeting to present the poster, every effort should be made to arrange for one of the other authors to present the poster. Both AMP (ampeducation@amp.org) and the Annual Meeting Program Chair, Dr. Daniel Sabath (dsabath@uw.edu) must be notified. Failure to defend one's study by not attending the poster during the assigned time period is a violation of the AMP Scientific Integrity Policy and may result in forfeiture of future abstract submission privileges.
    • expected to ensure that the abstract poster conforms to the Rules for Poster Display at the Annual Meeting (i.e., poster display size, format, and schedule).
  4. Please note that accepted abstracts that have not been previously published as either an abstract or a paper will be eligible for publication in the November 2017 issue of JMD. Abstracts that have been previously published or that are under consideration as an abstract for another meeting that occurs prior to November 2017 will be rejected.
  5. IMPORTANT: A disclosure report of relevant financial relationships is required for each author of a submitted abstract. Therefore, we recommend that you collect disclosure information from each author before you begin your abstract submission in order to expedite the online entry process. Each time you add an author's name during the online submission process, you will be asked to complete a disclosure report that is specific to that author. Employees of commercial entities should disclose employment in this section. Noting the company name in the Author Information field is not sufficient.
