Authors are required to complete the conflict of interest section when submitting an abstract. Additionally, the submitting/corresponding author will now be asked the following two questions during the submission process:

ACCME Policy on Employees of Commercial Interests
Industry employees can be authors, but cannot be presenters if the content of the abstract relates to the business lines and products of its employer.
SVS and SVS VAM Poster Session

Journal of Vascular Surgery
Abstracts accepted for oral presentation at the Eastern Vascular Society’s 2020 Annual Meeting will be submitted for publication in the August 2020 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery. Please note the change in policy from 2018, where abstracts submitted or accepted for poster to the EVS will not be submitted to the Journal. The author confirms that the results cited in the abstract are final and will not change once the manuscript is submitted for publication. These published abstracts are citable, and it is imperative that they are accurate and conclusions are final.
Manuscript Submission to the Journal of Vascular Surgery Publications
The authors of abstracts that are accepted for oral presentations are required to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Vascular Surgery Publications no later than October 11, 2020. The Editors will determine the Journal in which accepted manuscripts will be published. The exception is for the authors of Basic Science abstracts, who will be encouraged but not required to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Vascular Surgery Publications. Authors of the poster presentations are encouraged but not required to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Vascular Surgery Publications. To submit a manuscript, authors should login to the Web site http://jvs.editorialmanager.com, where detailed instructions can be found.
