"Health Communication, (Mis-)Information, and Behavior:
General Guidelines for Abstracts
We particularly encourage submissions that are related to the meeting theme. Abstracts related to other health behavior topics are also welcome for submission. In addition to research-based abstracts, this year we invite abstracts describing novel research protocols for proposed or on-going health behavior research studies. All abstract submissions are limited to 300 words.
You may submit no more than 3 abstracts as presenting author. If you submit more than 3 abstracts as presenting author, you will be asked to select abstracts for withdrawal. Abstracts are limited to 15 co-authors. If your abstract is accepted for presentation, it is expected that you and/or a co-author will register for the conference and be present for your session. All presenters/abstract authors will be responsible for their conference-related expenses (e.g., meeting registration and hotel).
We welcome submissions from members and non-members. We encourage submissions from first-time attendees.
All abstracts will be considered for poster presentation by default.
During the submission process, you will be asked if you would like your abstract to be considered for a 5-minute "lightning" talk. A select number of abstract submissions that receive the highest reviewer ratings (based on quantitative scores and indication by reviewers that they would be a good fit for the format), will be selected. Your indication of interest in being considered for a lightning talk will not affect the overall likelihood of your abstract's acceptance.
No Show Policy
Cancellations for accepted abstract presentations must be communicated directly to the AAHB Research Review Chair. Cancellations must be made prior to the first day of the Meeting.
Direct any questions about abstract submissions to Alyssa Robillard, PhD, 2024 Research Review Chair.
