Abstract

[Excerpt] To the Editor: We would very much like to thank Dr Vilanilam1 for adding their voice to our call for improved reporting of abstracts in leading neurosurgical journals.2 By drawing attention to “categories” of abstract consumers, Vilanilam1 causes us to ponder the varied expected consequences that abstract quality has on different readers. They further extend upon our comments by identifying that abstracts often form the basis of preliminary decisions regarding acceptance, or, otherwise, of submissions for publication in scientific journals,3 and often constitute the only published record of a piece of research.4 When taken with the results of our study, these comments strengthen the rationale for a renewed focus on improving the reporting quality of neurosurgical abstracts.
