The European Journal of Paediatric Surgery will normally have first choice for publication for those abstracts which have been presented at the Congress. Authors of accepted abstracts (oral and poster presentations) will be expected to submit manuscripts for consideration.
The Publication Committee will decide which manuscripts are accepted for publication in the congress issue. Please note that rejected abstracts of the congress which were not presented will be allowed to be submitted to the journal in the conventional way.
Young Investigator Award / Young Investigator Prize Session
The EUPSA “Young Investigator Award” has been made to stimulate research in Paediatric Surgery. The prize will be to the value of € 5’000.00. You may enter any paper for this session as long as the presenter is a trainee. Whilst a manuscript does not have to be submitted to the European Journal of Pediatric Surgery for papers in this session, the content of the presentation should still fulfil the criteria for all abstracts submitted for this congress. Papers for the prize session are selected on the basis that they are the highest scoring papers submitted to the Congress.
