Review Procedure

All abstracts submitted to the CRS Annual Meeting will go through a rigorous review procedure to maintain the highest scientific quality of the meeting. Submitted abstracts must meet the following minimum requirements:
  1. Significant and original contribution within the scope of the Controlled Release Society.
  2. Abstract submitted by the deadline.
  3. Written in clear English.
  4. Few syntax/spelling mistakes.
  5. Sufficient data presented, adequately analyzed and discussed with appropriate conclusions supported by the data. If not all data (example: active compound used) can be disclosed due to confidentiality, the abstract will not be rejected immediately; however, the reviewers will decide whether or not it contains enough interesting insights for acceptance. 
  6. Meets format guidelines.
  7. Contains data and tables and figures, clearly presented, to support the data.
