Policies for Abstract Submission

Copyright Policy 

Abstracts should not include libelous or defamatory content. Material presented in abstracts should not violate any copyright laws. If figures/graphics/images have been taken from sources not copyrighted by the author, it is the author's sole responsibility to secure the rights from the copyright holder in writing to reproduce those figures/graphics/images for both worldwide print and web publication. All reproduction costs charged by the copyright holder must be borne by the author. 

Resubmission Policy 

An abstract which has been previously published or presented at a national, regional or international meeting can only be submitted provided that there are new methods, new findings, updated information or other valid reasons for submitting that can be provided by the author. 

If preliminary or partial data has been published or presented, the author is required to indicate the details of the publication or presentation as well as the reasons for submitting the abstract to the 5th International One Health Congress. This information will be considered by the Congress Programme Committee when making final decisions. 

If the author neglects to indicate the details of when and where the preliminary or partial data has been published or presented, and the reasons for resubmitting (new methods, new findings, substantially updated information or other valid reasons), and if evidence of previous publication or presentation is found, the abstract will be rejected. 

Plagiarism 

The congress organizers regard plagiarism as serious professional misconduct. All abstracts are screened for plagiarism, and when identified, the abstract and any other abstracts submitted by the same author are rejected. 

Congress Embargo Policy

In the case of the 5th International One Health Congress, as with most scientific congresses, all congress abstracts are released to delegates and media under a strict embargo policy. A detailed breakdown of the embargo variations for different types of abstracts is available below. All regular delegates, presenters and media are asked to respect this policy.

Oral Abstracts

Information about the oral abstracts may not be published or presented before the start of the session at the 5th International One Health Congress in which the abstract is being presented.
 

Poster Abstracts

Information about the poster abstracts may not be published or presented before 10:00am (CST) on Thursday 21 June 2018.
