Call for Abstract Reviewers

2020 Annual Meeting Call for Abstract Reviewers

The call for abstract reviewers deadline for #AGS20 has passed. Thank you to everyone who volunteered to review abstracts for 2020!

The AGS Research Committee continues its quest to increase the size and diversity of the pool of abstract reviewers, ensuring that the AGS abstract review process benefits from the input of a variety of different perspectives. You can help by volunteering to review abstracts in your area of expertise!  The success of the peer review process depends on the willingness of qualified reviewers to share their time and expertise. Your experience and knowledge will enable you to provide helpful advice to the Research Committee on the merits of abstracts and constructive comments to submitters that can strengthen their future submissions.

To become an Abstract Reviewer, you must meet the criteria listed below, submit a biosketch (NIH- style, 4 pages maximum) and complete the short application form here to identify your area of expertise, the abstract submission category you wish to review, and to provide the necessary conflict of interest information. The deadline to submit an abstract reviewer application for the AGS 2020 Annual Meeting is Monday, November 18th.

Abstract Reviewer Criteria:  

  • must have first-authored two or more peer-reviewed original manuscripts
  • must have advanced degree training (MD, PhD, MPH, PharmD, MS, etc..) or equivalent non-clinical health care degree

If you are accepted as an abstract reviewer, you will be asked to review approximately 60 abstracts in the category or categories of your choice. The review process will begin December 5, 2019 and all reviews must be completed by January 10, 2020.

We are hopeful that you will be willing to give your time and expertise to work with us on this very important part of our meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Dennise at dmcalpin@americangeriatrics.org.
