All contributions to the XV Congress of the Brazilian Society of Toxinology will require the submission of an abstract, and a rigorous review procedure will be undertaken to maintain the highest scientific quality of the congress.
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed according to the following criteria: the work makes a significant and original contribution to the field; the scientific content falls within the scientific scope of the meeting; the abstract complies with the submission instructions.
The contributors should indicate the presentation preference (oral and/or poster) to which they would like to be considered under.
The abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. A score will be assigned based on the following assessment criteria for scientific content:
5 – Ground breaking research of outstanding quality and vision in the field;
4 – An innovative perspective on current understanding; high quality research providing new insights; a major development in the field; the exploitation of new scientific and health-care developments, unreported in the Toxinology field; advancing our understanding of Toxinology;
3 – An interesting and important addition, helping the continued development of the field;
2 – A modest addition to the field, contributing to the development of a specific area;
1 – Work demonstrating little scientific innovation over and above current published work; lacking scientific data, argument or foundation.
Highest-ranking scores within each category will be selected for oral presentation (if the authors chose oral presentation as their preference).
The reviewers will also take the following matters into consideration in their assessment of the abstract: The abstract is written in clear and acceptable English with few syntax and spelling mistakes; The abstract follows the guidelines in terms of content and format; Sufficient data is clearly presented and/or analyzed, is adequately discussed and appropriate conclusions drawn.
Failure to comply with these simple guidelines will affect the assessment score and may result in the rejection of an abstract.
