Student Mentoring Service

Society for Marine Mammalogy Student Abstract Mentoring Service

If you are a student submitting an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation to the upcoming 18th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals (to be held in Quebec City October 12-16, 2009) and English is not your
first language, you are eligible for the abstract mentoring service. This
service provides free editorial assistance with grammar and composition to
abstracts that have been prepared in English. The idea of the mentoring
service is to make sure that the original ideas of the student author are
clearly expressed in English. This service will not translate abstracts into
English or offer guidance with scientific content. The deadline for using this
service is Sunday, March 1, 2009. Please submit your abstract in the proper
format for submission to Lynne Williams (lynnee.williams@duke.edu) as soon as
possible, but no later than March 1, 2009. Your abstract will be returned to
you with suggested revisions as quickly as possible, with all abstracts to be
returned by March 31, 2009. Abstracts received after March 1 will not be
edited. Please note that you are responsible for the on-line submission of
your abstract.

If you have any questions about the student abstract mentoring service, please
contact Lynne Williams at the above e-mail address. More information on the
upcoming Biennial Conference can be found on the Society for Marine
Mammalogy?s website (http://www.marinemammalogy.org/).


Thanks!
