Aurora Scientific Virtual Poster Program Terms & Conditions

By submitting your research and participating in the Virtual Poster Program (VPP), you agree to the following terms & conditions:

  1. Data presented in the VPP must be original and accurate. Authorship should be based on a substantial intellectual contribution. “Acknowledgements” provide an opportunity to note assistance that does not warrant authorship but does merit recognition.
  2. Priority of data and ideas must be respected. Authors are responsible for consulting and citing relevant work where appropriate.
  3. Any data reported in scientific communications involving human or animal subjects must have been conducted in compliance with the relevant institutional review boards.
  4. All data should be presented so as to minimize the possibility of misinterpretation.
  5. Materials and Methods must be described in specific terms with sufficient detail to permit replication. Video and images, guides and additional supplementary resources are encouraged.
  6. Presentations must be prepared using the Microsoft Powerpoint (PPT) template provided and submitted prior to the agreed deadline for review by Aurora Scientific and InsideScientific.
  7. Authors are encouraged to have content reviewed by colleagues prior to their virtual poster recording date.
  8. Financial contributions to the work being reported should be clearly acknowledged, as should any potential conflict of interest.
  9. The sole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of a virtual poster rests with Aurora Scientific and InsideScientific.
  10. Researchers are cautioned that extensive disclosure of research results (specifically, new scientific discovery and associated data) in the public press may preclude publication in some peer-reviewed journals.  AuroraScientific and InsideScientific accept no responsibility for potential or perceived loss of opportunity for peer-reviewed publication of research shared in the VPP.
  11. Researchers agree to produce and publicize their research in the VPP under the following Creative Commons license:  Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/
