Late-Breaking Research Guidelines
A limited number of abstracts will be accepted for presentation as 5-minute talks in a session devoted to important late-breaking findings (i.e. after December 3, 2012) at the Annual Meeting. A member of CPDD must be a co-author. Although only 1 abstract of this type is allowed, that author may have submitted another abstract under the earlier deadline..
Papers can be on any aspect of drug abuse or addiction or on the actions of drugs of abuse. They should contribute to our knowledge of the agents involved in drug abuse, including their molecular biology, chemistry, pharmacological action, biological disposition, abuse potential, safety or clinical usefulness. Contributions concerning research on neurobiology, epidemiology, prevention, public health aspects, or management and treatment of drug dependence are also encouraged. The abstract must contain original research.
Original Research includes all prospective and retrospective studies that involve testing a hypothesis by collecting and analyzing data. Abstracts of basic research or clinical studies must specify the following: hypothesis, species, number of subjects, procedures, results, statistical analyses, and importance of findings (conclusions). Scholarly historical or sociological reports must specify hypothesis, procedures, analyses, results, and a concluding statement describing the implications of the study. Please note that results must be explicitly described in the abstract, and that abstracts reporting no results will likely be rejected. Recently completed studies, as yet unpublished, are preferred and any in press work must have a publication date after July 1, 2013. Abstracts should be 2300 characters or less, including authors.
To have your abstract considered for this special session, e-mail it to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2013. The subject of your e-mail should be “Late-Breaking Research” and the abstract should be labeled with the last name of the first author.
Upon notification of acceptance of your abstract to the Late-breaking Session, the abstract fee of $50.00 must be sent to the CPDD Executive Office, 3400 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19140.
