Manuscript Submission Rules and Requirements

EAST Annual Scientific Assembly Manuscript Submission Rules and Requirements

Manuscript Submission Flowchart

EAST takes the submission of manuscripts to the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery (JTACS) for abstracts presented at the EAST Annual Scientific Assembly seriously.  As such, all podium and quick shot abstract presentations during the Annual Scientific Assembly are required to submit a manuscript to JTACS by 11:59 pm Eastern on December 1st for pre-review by the EAST Manuscript and Literature Review Committee.  If a manuscript is not submitted by by 11:59 pm Eastern on December 1st the manuscript will not be reviewed by the EAST Manuscript and Literature Review Committee.  Additionally, failure to submit a manuscript to JTACS by 11:59 pm Eastern on December 31st will result in a one-year sanction imposed on the Presenting and Senior authors-preventing them from being named on any abstract submitted for the next Annual Scientific Assembly.  Any abstract submitted for the next year’s Annual Scientific Assembly that includes the name of the sanctioned Presenting or Senior Author, regardless of their placement on the author list, will not be eligible for submission. If submitted, these abstracts will not be considered for presentation at the Annual Scientific Assembly.  

Who must submit an abstract to JTACS?
All podium and quick shot abstract presentations are required to submit a manuscript to JTACS by the published deadline. Failure to do so will result in future sanctions for presenting and senior authors.  

Submission to JTACS by 11:59 pm Eastern on December 1st will allow for pre-review by the EAST Manuscript and Literature Review Committee prior to entry into the JTACS editorial process.  Failure to submit your manuscript to JTACS by 11:59 pm Eastern on December 1st will forfeit your opportunity to have your manuscript pre-reviewed and it will go through the standard JTACS editorial review process.  While acceptance of your manuscript for publication by JTACS cannot be guaranteed, manuscripts pre-reviewed by EAST’s Manuscript and Literature Review Committee have a higher rate of acceptance than those that have not been not pre-reviewed.
