This week we get ready for conference abstract deadlines and talk about how we prepare abstracts. Everyone is finally back in town, but not for long!

  • Pluto show next week!
  • Abstract deadlines: AGU 8/5, GSA 8/11
  • GSA, new topical abstracts (search visually by emoji!)

How we prepare to write abstracts

  • Choosing the topical material. When do you stop reporting on research?*
  • Think about what session to submit to
  • Mind maps
  • Outlines
  • Stream of conscience writing
  • Abstract Madlibs
  • Don’t do this steps hours before it is due. Leave days to mull it over
  • How preliminary is your data? Is it ready for an abstract?

Writing the abstract

  • Check the conference guidelines… then check them again.
  • Open an editor. John uses plain text editors initially.
  • Send it around for others to look at
  • Decide on authorship early

Tools for collaborating (a whole other show)

  • Google docs
  • Word/dropbox
  • Evernote (although everyone involved needs premium)
  • Email… if you do this, please don’t admit it

Other Notes

Problems

  • How to pick a session (look for others you know?)
  • Submission system crashing
  • Getting people to edit it!
  • Over-reporting

Fun Paper Friday

This week we read about recovering old sounds from recordings with a microscope. Also hearing cursing at lab instruments in the old days. Nothing changes.
