Society of Reproductive Investigation (SRI)

66th Annual Scientific Meeting, March 12 - 16, 2019

Late Breaking Abstracts

Abstract submission is now closed. All Late Breaking Abstract notifications will be sent at the beginning of February. You may still view your abstracts on the Abstract Submission website, but you are no longer able to make edits to abstracts.

Late Breaking Abstract Submission Guidelines

The purpose of the Late Breaking submission of abstracts is to give researchers the opportunity to report recently generated research on important basic, translational or clinical discoveries in women's reproductive health. Here are a few guidelines:

  • Research previously presented will not be accepted.
  • Case Reports are not generally encouraged for submission as late-breaking abstracts unless they significantly advance the field of reproductive science.
  • Membership in SRI is not a prerequisite for participating in the program.

Note: The deadline will remain firm and any late-breaking abstracts received after the deadline will not be accepted. No changes or withdrawals will be allowed for late-breaking abstracts.

Up to two late breaking abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations in our " Hot Topics" session on Saturday, March 16 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. CET. Most accepted abstracts will be poster presentations and will be available for viewing on the SRI meeting website. Late breaking abstracts will not be published in the meeting abstract book or final program.

If you have any questions while submitting your abstract, please contact technical support at or call 217-398-1792. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday
8:00AM - 5:00PM Central Standard Time.

Prior Publication Policy

  • Late breaking abstracts cannot contain data previously presented at a national meeting within the US at the time of abstract submission. 
  • Late breaking abstracts cannot contain data already accepted for publication in any online or PubMed indexed venue at the time of abstract submission. 
  • Violators will be subject to abstract withdrawal, and may be barred from presenting at future SRI meetings.

Evaluation of Abstracts

Abstracts will be scored based on the following considerations:

  1. Originality/Innovation: Is the idea or approach novel or is the work primarily confirmatory and/or a direct extension of previous work?
  2. Significance/Relevance: Does the work address an important problem?
  3. Objective/Hypothesis: Is an objective, specific research question and/or hypothesis stated?
  4. Methods: Are the methods described? Are the methods employed appropriate to the research question? Were new methods used and validated?
  5. Results: Are the results described clearly and succinctly? Was data evaluated statistically?
  6. Discussion: Is the conclusion supported by the data
