What to Submit?

We encourage submissions of original research, medical education and community projects, or clinical experience related to breastfeeding.

Review Process

The Abstract Review Committee will evaluate abstracts based on content quality, educational value, timelines, and clearly identified objectives. The Committee will determine the final decision about the acceptance of abstracts. Acceptance and rejection of notifications will be sent in the spring. All accepted abstracts will be published in Breastfeeding Medicine, the official, peer-reviewed journal of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Authors must register for the Annual Meeting to present/discuss their abstracts.
