 Criteria for RAMI Jacob Medal Abstract Preparation

Abstract should not exceed 400 words.

Submit in word format, not pdf. Use Times New Roman font in size 10.

Ideally the work to be presented should be original and unpublished, and should not have been presented at a national or international meeting.

A “blind” selection process will be used therefore please do not use identifying features such as names of hospitals, medical schools, clinics or cities in the title or text of the abstract. Any author not adhering to this rule will be asked to resubmit

The body of the abstract should include a statement outlining the aim of the study, the methods used, a factual summary of results and a conclusion.  If the abstract is an experimental one or a clinical trial, please state clearly the hypothesis being tested, describe quantitatively the experimental subject and give an appropriate level of statistical data and details of any formal statistical setting.  Statements such as “results will be discussed” are unacceptable.

Do not use subheadings, e.g. “methods”. Start each paragraph with an indentation of three spaces, but do not leave a line space between paragraphs.  Uncommon abbreviations should not be used without first being expressed in full.  Essential references (not more than two) must be cited in the Vancouver style, as used in the British Journal of Dermatology.

Presented data should agree with what is stated in the abstract.
