- Type of study: Is this a biography, a review, or an investigation stimulated by historical events? Have appropriate methods been used for the type of study? Are literature review, hypothesis, methodology and statistical analysis used as appropriate for the study?
- Analysis: Is the work just a review or summary of existing data already published in textbooks, journals or on the internet, or does it contain an analysis of these data producing original ideas?
- Presentation: Are the questions to be addressed, the results and meaning, clearly presented in the abstract. For posters, is the study clearly explained. Is there good use of visual images-slides or photographs?
- Work involved: Is the contribution of the presenter clearly delineated? For presenters who are students or trainees not yet in dermatology, is there appropriate recognition of support from senior dermatological colleagues?
