- Abstracts describing the results of experimental studies should answer two questions: (1) What was done? (2) What was found?
- Abstracts should contain the following:
- Statement of the rationale and scope of the study presented
- Brief description of the experimental procedures
- Data that resulted from the study
- Principal conclusion(s) based on interpretation of the results
- Phrases such as “results/data will be discussed” convey no information as to the outcome of the studies and are unacceptable.
- Abstracts that do not describe laboratory or field experiments must incorporate all the elements described above with the following modifications:
- Instead of experimental procedures, the research or assessment approach should be described briefly.
- Instead of resultant data, the study's results or findings should be summarized explicitly.

- All non-standard acronyms must be defined.
- All animal experimentation must be carried out in accordance with the Society of Toxicology’s criteria for the care and use of animals in research.
- All abstracts presenting data from human subjects must indicate that protocols were reviewed and approved by a Human Subjects Institutional Review Board.
