Abstract Policies & Exceptions

Submitting Your Abstract to Another Meeting

The procedure for submission of abstracts that have been accepted by an ASCO meeting to another meeting are governed primarily by the organizing body of that other meeting, and secondarily are subject to ASCO’s copyright in that abstract. If the organizing body does accept previously published/presented abstracts, then ASCO will allow authors to submit their abstracts to such organizing body after public release by ASCO, subject to compliance with the guidelines below.

On submission of the pre-published abstract, authors must notify the organizers of the other meeting that the abstract was presented at an ASCO Quality Care Symposium or other ASCO meeting, and that ASCO holds the copyright to the abstract. A credit line must be published with the re-publication of the abstract as follows: “© 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. Reused with permission. This abstract was accepted and previously presented at the 2018 ASCO Quality Care Symposium. All rights reserved.” For additional information on ASCO copyright and approvals for reuse, please email our permissions department.
