Abstract Submissions

The AudiologyNOW! 2014 submission system is now closed.



The Submission Process

We try to make the submission process as painless as possible for those who submit abstracts for AudiologyNOW!. Here is an outline of what to expect and a little explanation of how it works.

The abstract submission process is done 100% online through our abstract submission system. Only online submissions will be considered for acceptance.

For a few days following each deadline, the Academy organizes the online blind review process with the appropriate program subcommittee members. Then the blind review process begins. Each subcommittee member can only see the title, abstract, and summary of each submission. They then begin their reviews and assign a score for the submission; they also have the option to leave a comment.

Once the review process is complete, scores are tallied, and submitters are notified via email by the Academy of acceptance or decline. Keep an eye on the dates the decision letters will go out, in some situations dates may get pushed back.

Helpful Definitions

Here are some helpful definitions when submitting an abstract for AudiologyNOW:

The abstract of your submission will act as your session description and will be published in print and online conference materials for AudiologyNOW! attendees if your submission is accepted.

Contributor – Contributors are individuals who contribute to the presentation content but will not present the material to the audience. Contributor’s names will be listed in the final program.

Disclosure – If a presenter at AudiologyNOW! has a financial or other relationship in any organization that may have a direct interest in the subject matter of the educational program, the audience must be aware of the relationship in print in advance of the presentation. In this way any potential conflict of interest will be identified openly so attendees have full disclosure of the facts and may form their own judgments about the presentation. Conflicts of interest may be real or perceived, and any potential for financial gain deriving from the reported work may constitute a conflict of interest. It is the responsibility of the submitter(s) to report any real or perceived financial conflict of interest.

Presenter – Presenters are individuals who contribute to the presentation content and will present the material to the audience. Presenter names will be listed in the final program.

Summary – The Summary of your submission is a more in-depth look into the topic. Details pertaining to the topic should be included in this portion of your submission. This is the area in which you will want to ‘wow’ the reviewers with your findings.
