Journal of Vascular Surgery
Abstracts accepted for presentation at the Midwestern Vascular 2013 will be submitted for publication in the November 2013 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery. The author confirms that the results cited in the abstract are final and will not change once the manuscript is submitted for publication. These published abstracts are citable, and it is imperative that they are accurate and conclusions are final.
Manuscript Submission to the JVS
The authors of abstracts that come to oral presentations are required to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Vascular Surgery. The exception is for the authors of Rapid Fire abstracts, who will be encouraged but not required to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
The Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society prohibits dual presentation and dual publication of research. An abstract submission that has been accepted for presentation at the SVS VAM (oral or poster), or will be published prior to presentation at the MVSS meeting, should not be submitted to the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society.
In addition, the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society has a policy that prohibits dual submission, presentation, or publication of research as follows:
MVSS DUAL PRESENTATION/PUBLICATION POLICY
