Looking at past years, the ARVO abstracts are usually published in IOVS in May or June. Does anyone know when they will be published this year? Trying to figure out how to cite my abstract for my application
So that's kind of what I'm asking. On the ARVO website, they say to use this format for citations: "Abstracts for 2002 forward: (Roska BM, et al. IOVS 2002;43:ARVO E-Abstract 989)," which is straightforward enough, but they haven't actually published the abstracts in IOVS yet this year. I can find my abstract online in the pdf's for poster session, but it's not in IOVS yet (ie, not searchable). So, I'm kind of wondering if I should cite it as a poster at ARVO vs a published abstract in IOVS. I guess IOVS could publish them in the next month, making this all a little pointless, but I'm just trying to work on my app and thought I'd ask.
Why do you need to list it as a poster vs published abstract? Why not make a the title of your section in research more vague: "abstracts and poster presentations" or "abstracts".
Everyone knows Arvo is real. You're not being dishonest. And you don't have to cite it that way. You can cite all your abstracts the same way for formatting purposes.
You're right this is kinda pointless. Do not waste your time on this. Waste time on personal statement and proofreading
