Not sure if others have noticed, but abstracts are no longer being considered as apart of the research publications tab for this years application.
I was pretty upset by this decision as I have a few significant abstract publications at international conferences that were the result of a lot of hard work and something to show for for my years of research experience. The only other relevant outcome was a presentation at a local conference/research week type deal. Journal publications are pending and a work in progress - largely due to political issues (authors, funding).
Would it be beneficial/how would you try and work this into the rest of the application? I understand abstracts it's academic by nature, but could it somehow be added into the non-academic activities portion of the application?
