The final abstract must follow these guidelines:

  • If you have a PB Works account, you are required to upload your abstract to your PB Works “workspace,” then notify the clinical research office you’ve done so. We will not accept them in any other form.
  • Watch this video on how to navigate through PB Works (including uploading options) if you haven’t done so already
  • Create your abstract in Microsoft Word.
  • One page or less.
  • No header or footer.
  • The margins of the document should be as follows:  top margin between 0.5 and 1 inch; side margins exactly 1 inch; bottom margin at least 1 inch.
  • Top of page:  title, authors, department/institution, Brooklyn, NY.
  • Body: use separate paragraphs with headings in bold for introduction, methods, results, and discussion.
    • Each section, Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion, has a heading on its own line, in Arial Font – just like this document.
    • Use Times New Roman font in 12-point type for the main text.
  • References, tables, and figures are optional.
  • No page number.

All abstracts for the research fair will be printed in a proceedings e-booklet available in PB Works and here.
