All abstracts must be written in English and should be structured under the headings: Objectives, Design, Subjects, Methods, Results, Conclusions and References.
References should not be included. If they are vital then please limit to two. They should follow the standard British Journal of Neurosurgery format with Consecutive superscript numbering.
*The body of the abstract must be no longer than 1500 characters (approx 250 words). Use only standard abbreviations and do not include figures or tables. Abstracts without details of the number of subjects studied, without results containing data, without clear conclusions, or without appropriate statistical analysis, will be given low priority.
If the results are based on a survey of opinion from neurosurgeons in the UK/Eire, please contact the SBNS office to confirm the survey was presented for consideration and received approval by the SBNS Scientific Meetings Committee.
You have a maximum of 1500 characters for the following fields combined.
The SBNS and the British Journal of Neurosurgery takes a very serious view of the issue of scientific probity.
Specifically the data presented in the abstract must match that subsequently presented at the meeting. Papers or Posters should not be withdrawn once the author has agreed to present. There must be no duplicate publication. All the authors listed must be aware of the submission.
If there are serious breaches of this standard the SBNS and the Journal will withdraw the abstract, inform all the authors and their sponsoring organisation. In the case of consultants this will be their Medical Director and for Trainees the Post Graduate Dean. Authors are reminded that scientific fraud is reportable to the General Medical Council.
