Academy Meeting Paper and Poster Abstract Citation Information

The format of the program numbers is described below.

The Academy's scientific papers and posters can be cited using a program number in which the first two digits are the year (i.e. "05", for 2005). The next digit is either "0" (for papers), or "5" (for posters). The next three digits are the placement of the papers or posters in the meeting. The 2005 meeting includes the numbers 001 to 103 for papers, and 001 to 436 for posters.

Example:

Before 2005:
Omlor RA, Mutti DO. Differences in axial length using A-scan ultrasonography and IOL Master: effects of anterior chamber depth. Optom Vis Sci 2003;80(suppl.):120. Beginning 2005: Author, VS. The effect of all-work and no-play on peripheral vision. Optom Vis Sci 2005;82:E-abstract 050437.

[The OVS volume changes each year with year 2005 being 82; hence "Optom Vis Sci 2005;82" in the citation.]
