Publication in peer-reviewed journals can sometimes be a drawn-out process taking up to 2 years. To disseminate research results in a timely manner, abstracts can be submitted to professional organizations and presented at their conferences. Abstracts are stringently reviewed for validity and relevance before being accepted by the review committee. Please see a list of abstracts that were previously presented at national conferences.
