The World Federation of Chiropractic has issued an invite for research abstracts for the 17th WFC Biennial Congress, to be held Oct. 11-14, 2023, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
New abstracts may be submitted to one of the following categories: Clinical/Basic Science; Education; Public Health/Health Services/Epidemiology; and Clinical Case Study/Series.
New abstracts can be submitted at: https://bit.ly/WFC2022_newabstract.
Full papers accepted will not have been published prior to June 1, 2023 (but may have been presented at another conference). Ethics approval for the work was obtained or was exempted (proof of this must be provided to the WFC upon request), or ethics review not needed (eg, systematic reviews). Previously published papers will be considered separately in the following research categories: Clinical/Basic Science, Education, Public Health/Health Services/Epidemiology, Case Study/Series.
Previously-published papers (June 1, 2021 to June 1, 2023) can be submitted to: https://bit.ly/WFC2023_publishedpaper.
Submission requirements: The presenter of either a new abstract or previously-published paper must be an author and must be registered by the due date and provide WFC all required information and permissions. Any submitted abstract or paper that is suspected of involving scientific misconduct or ethics issues will be addressed using the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines and may be subject to immediate rejection. Any submitted presentation that does not meet the submission criteria will be removed from the program.
For both new abstracts and previously published papers, only two (2) presentations may be made by any one (1) person. An author can be listed on any number of accepted abstracts as coauthor, but any author may present no more than two (2) abstracts.
There are a limited number of time slots for previously-published papers, thus not all will be accepted for presentations.
