Why write an abstract?

One of the key aims of the King’s John Price Paediatric Respiratory Conference 2022 is to facilitate the development and dissemination of UK respiratory research. Writing an abstract affords an excellent opportunity to generate interest in your research and communicate findings to the UK respiratory research community. An abstract can be presented as a summary for your paper‐in progress, providing a first opportunity to present preliminary research findings, communicate data and seek feedback on your work. It should be setting the foundation for publication in a peer reviewed journal.

Abstract selection: process overview.

All abstracts will be reviewed by expert reviewers.

Getting your abstract accepted

The following tips are provided to try and help you ensure that your abstract is successful in being accepted for the King’s John Price Paediatric Respiratory Conference.


  1. Research not Audit. With very few exceptions (e.g. large multi‐centre audits with implications for service delivery) abstracts describing the results of audits will not be accepted for the conference. This is similar for case reports that are submitted.
  2. Less is more. Avoid dividing your research into multiple abstracts. Your chances of abstract acceptance will be greatly enhanced by submitting a single abstract containing data from your research project rather than multiple abstracts detailing individual facets of your work.
  3. Novelty. Abstracts presenting novel data and ideas usually score much more highly than those that replicate previous work. When presenting your research, emphasis should be placed on the novel aspects of your work and highlighting how this adds to current knowledge. Abstract reviewers are expert in their area and will have a good knowledge of the existing literature.
  4. Give yourself time. Having done the hard work of doing the research, give yourself plenty of time to write the abstract. Do not underestimate the challenge of trying to present months, or even years of work in 350 words. A well-written, concise abstract ensures that your data is presented in the best light and enables those reading it to understand the value of your work.

How to structure your abstract:

Title: The title should accurately reflect the content of the abstract, ideally describing the scope of the investigation, study design and goal. The title should be easy to understand and avoid the use of jargon or abbreviations.

Authors: The list of authors should be restricted to those who carried out the study. The list of authors should be added in the order that the names should appear in the printed abstract should it be accepted. The institution, city and country of each author should be included. All authors listed should approve the abstract before it is submitted.

Introduction and Objectives: A brief summary of the current knowledge or state of the art in relation to the work you are presenting: set out the aim of the study ideally including a short statement of your hypothesis.

Methods: This should be a concise statement of the methods used including a brief outline of the study design, the context of the study and the type of data that was collected.

Results: The most important data in your study and the findings on which your conclusions are based. Include a table or figure only if this is required to show your results.

Conclusions: Brief outline explaining why these findings are important and describe their potential implications.

Encore abstracts may be submitted provided they have only been presented at only one meeting previously, e.g. ERS or ATS. The author should send an e‐mail to info@paediatricrespiratory.com detailing when and where their abstract had been previously presented.

Please note that abstracts will have a very limited amount of copy editing by the production team. This means that:

  • Your abstract will be reproduced as it is submitted on the abstract system
  • Abbreviations and definitions will be left as submitted so we would encourage you to spell out abbreviations on first use unless they are very common
  • References will appear as they have been submitted (the full reference will not be added if this is incomplete)
  • The table or figure you submit will be reproduced as submitted so please ensure the legend/content is legible. All tables/figures are reproduced in black and white


Declarations of Interest:
If there are specific issues related to conflicts of interest that the authors wish to declare in connection with a particular abstract, please send an email outlining the details to info@paediatricrespiratory.com and we will retain this information on file with your abstract.

Confirmation of abstract submission:
Upon submission, a confirmation email will be sent to the submitters email address. If you do not receive the confirmation e-mail, please contact info@paediatricrespiratory.com.

Notification of acceptance:
All further communication, including notification letter, will be ONLY with the presenting author that has been indicated during the abstract submission.

One author for each abstract submitted will be required to register to attend the meeting and pay the appropriate in-person delegate fee. Please do not submit an abstract if you are unable or unwilling to attend the meeting in-person.
