The receipt, evaluation and assignment of scientific abstracts to specific categories for the Annual Scientific meeting or to other meetings for which the SRI assumes responsibility for managing the program will incur a fee. Thus the following policy has been created to provide partial offset to the cost of such efforts.
Effective immediately, each and every abstract submission must be accompanied with a payment of $40 (USD). This peer abstract cost is non-refundable.
Those abstracts submitted without the appropriate payment will not be reviewed. Nor will they be returned to the author.
It is incumbent on each and every author charged with the responsibility of submitting abstracts to be aware of this policy which will be posted on the SRI website indefinitely along with other instructions regarding appropriate abstract format and submission details.
The SRI maintains the right to reject abstracts that fail to conform to these guidelines.
To support scientific exchange at regional and international meetings, and societies whose meetings are not attended primarily by obstetrician-gynecologists, the Council of the Society for Reproductive Investigation has agreed that the Society will permit the presentation of abstracts that have been previously presented at either regional meetings, international meetings, or meetings of alternative societies which do not primarily include obstetrician-gynecologists. These abstracts may have been published in the program of the meeting, but should not have appeared in peer-reviewed journals. When submitting an abstract which has been presented at another meeting, the author should note on the abstract submission form where the abstract has previously been presented.
Adopted by the Council of the Society for Reproductive Investigation (formerly Society for Gynecologic Investigation)
