Track Policies


Applications submitted in the research track typically have a hypothesis (or research question), present data, and synthesize the results into meaningful conclusions. Abstracts in the research track have higher acceptance standards and must be structured into Background, Objective, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. Each section should start with the respective heading in the same line (e.g. ";Background: The Internet has become...";). DO NOT CAPITALIZE THE SECTION HEADINGS (e.g. do not write ";BACKGROUND:";, but ";Background:";). In the results section, make sure to include relevant statistics, if applicable, such as sample sizes, response rates, P-values or Confidence Intervals.

Checked Open Submissions Checked Peer Reviewed


Proposals submitted in the practice track typically reflect academically-focused or practical work developed to address a particular need or purpose, with qualitative results and/or discussion of how the work fits into the larger body of work in Medicine 2.0. You can submit descriptions of useful websites, mobile apps, or services here which have not (yet) been rigorously evaluated.

Checked Open Submissions Checked Peer Reviewed


Work that reflects a commercial business need or interest should be presented in the business track. Work presented by a commercial interest or applicable to business (e.g. Startup Pitches) should also be presented in the Business track.
