Q: How should I prepare an abstract for submission elsewhere while ensuring that my manuscript will still be considered for publication in the JAVMA or AJVR?
A: The AVMA encourages investigators to share scientific information with their colleagues at scientific meetings. The feedback investigators receive on their presentations at such meetings can be helpful for those who subsequently intend to publish their findings in primary-source peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Journal of Veterinary Research. That said, the AVMA will not consider a manuscript for publication if it has been published elsewhere or is currently being considered for publication elsewhere. For more information please see the Guidelines for preparation of scientific abstracts.
