Abstract

The ability to consistently review abstracts in an unbiased and objective fashion is a skill that most academics hope to master. However, robust standardized rating systems are sparse, with most scientific boards leaving the task of rating abstracts poorly defined and at the whim of the reviewer. In an effort to bring consistency to this process, in 2013, the ESPU board adopted an abstract rating system that has been previously used in the field of plastic surgery and orthopedics. (van der Steen et al., 2004; Poolman et al., 2007). The aim of this manuscript is to outline this practice.
