Instructions for Authorsدستورالعمل ارسال مقاله

Instructions for Authors:

All submitted abstracts should be in line with following Instructions. Abstracts submitted to ASC which do not adhere to the “Instructions for Authors”, will not be reviewed.

Presenting authors need to submit the abstract through the online submission system of the congress website. For submitting abstracts, you should register on the congress website. Please click for registration on the congress website.

Abstracts should be written in English and edited natively. ABSTRACTS IN FARSI OR OTHER LANGUAGES WILL NOT BE REVIEWED.

ASC accepts abstracts within the following categories:

  • Original Research
  • Review
  • Case Reports
  • Report of an experience: This category provides an unstructured space that allows you to present your experiences in design and delivery for substance use disorder services. 

Authors need to define their preference for their abstracts to be presented as oral talk or in poster presentations (presentation mode) while submitting it in the online system. It should be noted that the congress review committee might change the status (presentation mode) of a submitted abstract from oral to poster presentation.  

Names and academic or organizational affiliations of all authors, along with their mobile phone number and email address should be written within the online submission system of the congress website. Academic degrees (e.g. MSc, MD or PhD) should not be added to the affiliations (e.g. Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran).

All abstracts will be blind reviewed by two independent reviewers assigned by the congress peer review committee and corresponding authors will be informed of the result. If an abstract complies these instructions and receives scientific approval by reviewers, it will be announced as an oral or poster presentation. Submitting authors could choose the status of abstract (preferred presentation mode) as oral or poster presentation during initial submission, although some of submitted abstracts as oral presentation might be accepted as poster presentation. This will be decided by the peer review committee of the congress. 

Abstracts of original researches, reviews and case reports should have maximum 500 words and structured in separate parts as Objective, Methods, Results, Conclusion, 3 to 5 Keywords and Key message (optional) as below:

  • Objective: This should mention the background, main purpose and question of the study.

ASC has accepted all terms and conditions of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) on plagiarism. So, in any case of plagiarism, which is brought to the congress editors’ attention and accompanied with convincing evidence, we act based on flowcharts and workflows determined in COPE. Meanwhile, to detect and prevent plagiarism in the congress proceeding, all submissions will be checked with iThenticate software in both stages of submission and acceptance.

Additional Notes

Automatic translators to English like “Google Translate” often provide funny results that make us laugh at the review committee. Meanwhile, it can result in public shame for presenting authors. Use any technology carefully and responsibly.  

We would recommend you to prepare your abstract in software platforms like Office Word and enjoy their proofreading facilities. You may copy and paste the final file to the congress website in assigned spaces.
