How to Submit & Manage Abstracts on a Dryfta-Powered Abstract System

One of the reasons Dryfta event platform is used by universities, non-profits and corporate is the platform’s ability to collect abstract and paper submissions and assign them to reviewers, apart from other features that it is capable of.

This blog post quickly explains how authors can submit abstracts and manage submitted abstracts.

To access the abstract submission site, one needs to log in using email and password. To access the abstract submission site if one doesn’t have login credentials, author has to create an account first. After creating an account, go to the abstract submissions login page, and enter the login credentials (email and password) to log in to the abstract system.

Once logged-in, go to My Abstracts page and click on Submit Abstract button to submit an abstract or paper. To edit an existing abstract, click on the name of the abstract which you want to edit.

Authors can revise abstracts up until the last date for abstract submission. After that, authors can view abstracts but they cannot make changes. Admin has the option to open abstract editing after submission date for those abstracts which have been accepted.

We decided to add a progress bar in abstract management system to keep chairs and admins aware of where they are in the abstract submission process and what is next that is to be done.

This progress bar progressively displays the task that needs to be done in the abstract management system, marks completed tasks as done and keeps admin updated on the currently ongoing activity in the abstract submission system.

Starting from setting up abstract submission to collecting abstracts, assigning abstracts to reviewers and making decisions on the reviewed abstracts, it covers the whole aspect of abstract management and peer review.

Collect abstract submissions fees online

If you charge a processing fee per abstract submission or per accepted abstract submission for your conference, then Dryfta event platform is for you. Using Dryfta, you can create tickets to collect abstract submission fees for all submitted & accepted abstracts.

For abstract submissions, as soon as the fee payment is confirmed, the system would allow author to submit the abstract/s. Admin can select the number of abstracts that can be submitted per ticket and set the dates for abstract submission site to open and close abstract submissions.

For fees paid for accepted abstracts to allow authors to present the paper at the conference, once author has paid the fee through credit card, the system would send the invoice to the author and updates the abstract submission with the Paid status automatically. This makes sure admin knows if the accepted abstract has been paid for or not.
