how to cite abstracts
According to Scientific Style and Format [Council of Science Editors, Seventh Edition, 2006], meeting abstracts should be cited using the following format:
Hare, L.R., & O’Neill, K. (2000). Effectiveness and efficiency in small academic peer groups. Small Group Research, 31, 24-53. Abstract retrieved from Sociological Abstracts database. (Accession No. 200010185).
For MLA style
List the date of publication in parentheses followed by a period. For example: (2010).
List the title of the article. According to APA guidelines, only the first letter of the title should be capitalized. The first letter of proper nouns should also be capitalized. For example: Nursing students in China and available scholarship support.
It is not entirely unreasonable to include a citation in an abstract, if the reason you are citing it is because your paper is a major extension, rebuttal, or counterpoint to the cited article.
Do you think it’s okay to have citations in an abstract or do you personally prefer to have the abstract be a “stand-alone” piece of work?
If you are planning a conference in endocrinology or a related topic, why not publish the abstracts in Endocrine Abstracts ? Using an issue of Endocrine Abstracts as your official conference abstract book offers you many advantages.

Each year, more than 4,000 abstracts are submitted for review and are published in the abstract book and/or personally presented at the scientific or poster sessions at the EULAR Annual Congress. The abstract book is a supplement to the “Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases – the EULAR Journal” and can be downloaded on the EULAR Congress website. Read or download the Abstract book.
The EULAR Abstract Archive provides access to all the abstracts presented at the congress from 2001 onwards. Abstracts from 2005 onwards contain the citation reference. Visit the EULAR Abstract Archive
