As a planned presenter, will my accepted abstract still be published in the JAOA?

Where can I find more information about COVID-19?

AACOM has created a web page (https://www.aacom.org/coronavirus) for our community as a way of sharing official information about COVID-19. We welcome you to check back often to get updates.

Who do I contact for more information?

Visit the Educating Leaders website for updated information on the virtual event we are moving to, and registrations. AACOM has set up an email (AC2020-C19@aacom.org) for you to contact us with questions regarding the changes.

What impact does placing my abstract in the online JAOA have on my work and future publications?

Will this be indexed for PubMed?

No, presently we do not have an indexing for the abstracts.

This project’s very similar abstract was published after presenting at OMED.  Would I be allowed to have it published again? 

Not if it is the same abstract; if it is the same, please withdraw it or choose not to permit publication.

Can I publish my work again after it has appeared as an abstract in the JAOA? 

Each author must complete a copyright release form to the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. Note: Co-authors reserve all proprietary rights and the right to use all or part of the abstract in future works of their own. All authors may use the abstract in a future published article, and assign the copyright for that article, including the copyright, to the publishing journal. If co-authors want to reprint their abstract elsewhere, reprint permission can be obtained from the JAOA.

Has AACOM done this before?

Yes, 2019 JAOA Online Publications and 2018 JAOA Online Publications

Will my registration fee be refunded?

AACOM will refund 50% of the fee, in the original form of payment. The remaining 50% will be used toward the virtual event and the non-refundable costs incurred by AACOM for the conference.

What if I can’t attend the virtual conference? Do I get a full refund?

No. If you can’t join for the virtual event which is scheduled for the same dates of the conference, you will have access to some conference materials after the virtual event. We hope you will take advantage of these!
