Abstract guidelines for poster presentations
The format for abstracts is the same for oral presentations and posters, but there is a distinction between research and practice/policy abstracts.
The following applies for all abstracts:
- The whole abstract can be up to 400 words
- The title should be as brief as possible and no longer than 15 words
- The abstract must be written in grammatically correct English
- Do not use graphs and tables
Research abstracts must include the following sections:
State the primary purpose of the study, including the main research questions or hypotheses being addressed, emphasizing what is innovative about this research.
Quantitative studies should include design, participants, measures and analyses. Qualitative studies should describe the methods of data generation and analyses used. Reviews should include details of the procedures adopted.
Quantitative studies should include a summary of the results, which can contain numerical data. Qualitative studies should include an indication of the main results of the analysis. Reviews should include a summary of the main findings that will be discussed in the paper. This section should present specific findings, rather than suggesting that ‘results will be discussed’.
Explain the possible contribution to, or implications for, knowledge, methods or practice in the field of health promoting health-enhancing physical activity.
State how the study was funded.
Practice or policy abstracts must include the following sections
State the primary purpose of the project or policy, including the main health-enhancing physical activity and/or health issues being addressed, for which target group, emphasizing what is innovative about this project or policy.
Project or policy description:
Four main topics should be described: development, implementation, evaluation and dissemination.
Describe how the project or policy was developed, which stakeholders were involved, and who was responsible for its implementation. Describe how the implementation took place, how it was evaluated, and – to the extent relevant - how it is, or will be disseminated or scaled-up.
Explain the possible contribution to, or implications for, knowledge, methods, practice or policy in the field of health promoting physical activity.
