Abstract formatting guidelines

You may use simple HTML (hyper text mark-up language) elements, as described below to include bold, italic, super- and sub-script in both the title and abstract. These will be shown when you press the "Registration proofreading" button. After doing this and checking your abstract, you can submit it or return to make alterations.

  • To italicize text, begin words with <i>, and end them with </i>
  • To bold text, begin words with <b>, and end them with </b>
  • To superscript text, begin words with <sup>, and end them with </sup>
  • To subscript text, begin words with <sub>, and end them with </sub>
  • To underline text, begin words with <u>, and end them with </u>
Be sure to include the less-than (<) and greater-than (>) symbols around the mark up codes. You will see the effect of the above mark up codes when you press the "Registration proofreading" button.

The following link includes a selection of HTML codes for the ASCII symbols. You may use them if your abstract contains other special characters not supported by our system.
  • for example, if you need to type an umlaut sign (e.g., ä), please use &auml; code.
