Acceptance notifications will be sent in January 2018.
All accepted Oral Presentations are REQUIRED to submit a manuscript to the AHNS-affiliated journal, JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery by April 7, 2018, via the journal’s web-based manuscript submission system (see below). Please note that this deadline precedes the start of the meeting by 11 days.
ORAL PRESENTERS WHO FAIL TO SUBMIT A MANUSCRIPT TO THE JOURNAL BY April 7, 2018 WILL FORFEIT YOUR PRIVILEGE TO PRESENT AT THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR THE SUBSEQUENT TWO ANNUAL MEETINGS. This Policy is firmly enforced and will take effect immediately.
Authors of abstracts selected for Poster Presentation are encouraged to submit a manuscript to JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, but it is not required. To be considered for inclusion in the journal’s AHNS Theme Issue, the manuscript must be submitted before July 15, 2018. All papers submitted to the journal undergo thorough peer review and editorial decisions for acceptance for publication are based on the quality the manuscripts and the editorial priorities of the journal. Papers received by these deadlines will have the most favorable chances for success.
A few select research papers, both Oral and Poster may also be considered for simultaneous publication with presentation during the AHNS meeting. All such papers must be submitted electronically to the journal by Wednesday, February 7, 2018.
