Papers vs. Abstracts

The published proceedings for the M&M meeting are 2-page scientific papers (required of all presenters) which are reviewed for content, format and appropriateness. These are able to be referenced, and are published by Cambridge University Press under the meeting's moniker.

This is in marked contrast to other meetings which distribute ABSTRACTS (and only to attendees), the results of which are never heard from again.

Key scientific "firsts" are routinely reported in the M&M Proceedings. We highlight new and innovative as well as informational/tutorial/help work. You will be able to find electronic copies of our papers online using the standard publisher DOI; referencing system and requests are routinely found for copies of our short papers. This compendium of work and material with full access is not duplicated anywhere else in the world, and that is why the M&M Annual Meeting is so popular, and why its standards exceed all others.

If there are presentations that need to be cited in published work, MSA releases the copyright (free) for publication of images used in the meeting's Proceedings papers with no problems. The Proceedings papers are published on digital media, online on the Microscopy and Microanalysis (Cambridge University Press) homepage as Supplement 3 to the MAM Journal, and as a hardbound Print-on-Demand option. Most Proceedings papers are on the Web of Science. Medlines usually does not reference the Proceedings papers.
