Layout of student abstract
• You do not need to make a coverpage for your student abstract as EAGE will make this for you with the title, authors and summary. Please do not include this information in the body text of your student abstract. Please start the body text of your student abstract directly under the logo.
• The body of the student abstract needs to be two A4 pages in length. Longer or shorter sized abstracts will be rejected. The student abstract should consist of text and appropriate figures supporting the key message. The text should contain about 1,000 words and at least one figure. Two pages of text alone are unacceptable.
• Please do not use more than 1 column, do not frame the text, and please upload the body of your extended abstract as one document with embedded figures.
• Please use the font Times New Roman 11 pts with single line spacing, set the alignment as justified and use the standard Word outline level (body text).
• The margins which must be used are as follows:
Top - 2.54cm (1")
Bottom - 2.54cm (1")
Left & right - 2.54cm (1")
• The lay-out of the references should be consistent with the style guide for references in the First Break guidance for authors. Please ensure every citation has a reference and vice versa.
• Number the figures sequentially, according to their appearance in the text, and check that each figure is cited in the text.
• Supply a short caption for each figure, more detailed discussion of the figure can be reserved for the text. Further information about the use of figure captions and figure numbering can be found in the First Break guidance for authors.
• For your convenience: an example of a student abstract, courtesy of Ayodeji Oluboyo. Please note an 'extended abstract' and has a higher level of requirements than what is required for the student abstract (see above details).
If you wish, you may use the downloadable template to create a PDF file of the student abstract body text, which you may then upload to the system. If you choose this option, please do not protect the PDF file.
