Organization and Content

Please read this information carefully

A) Regulations

  • Abstracts will be published in a supplement of Osteoporosis International (only if accepted).
  • For standardisation, the total length of the abstract must not exceed 3000 printable characters (these include nonvisible characters such as spaces) and 50 line counts.
  • The body of the abstract will be structured as follows with the following subtitles:
    - Aim
    - Methods
    - Results
    - Conclusions
    - References (if applicable)
    - Acknowledgments (if applicable)
  • Images may be included with the following criteria:
    - Minimum image resolution: 300 dpi
    - Maximum image width: 8 cm
    - Allowed file types: .gif, .jpg
  • Commercial (trade) names of drugs are not allowed - the generic or chemical names must be used.

B) Guidelines

  • Please be advised that the insertion of images may significantly reduce the number of remaining characters, because these will be included in the character and line count. It is highly recommended to use only one image file to allow for enough abstract text.
  • The abstract Title should clearly define the content of the paper.
  • It is preferable that the Aim is stated in one sentence, the Methods kept to a brief description, that the Results are summarised and presented in sufficient detail to support the Conclusions. Note that it is not recommended to postulate that “the results will be discussed during the oral presentation” or that “other data will be presented later”.
  • Images will be published in greyscale with a printed width of approximately 8 cm. An image should be large enough so that it is readable when printed in the abstract book.
  • Please refer to the online abstract submission platform for further details regarding abstract content and style, including submission of Greek characters. Note that copy-pasting is enabled with automatic update of the font style.
  • Use standard abbreviations where appropriate. Include any other abbreviations in brackets after the full word the first time it appears.
