Approving abstracts

When students submit their abstract to SOURCE, the person the student lists as the primary faculty mentor receives an automatic email prompting them to go to the website to approve the abstract.

If you receive one of these emails, we hope it is not the first time you learn that a student of yours is submitting an abstract to SOURCE! Our directions to students for preparing their submission explicitly state many times that they should involve you from the beginning.  That said, errors happen, so we are emailing you the abstract so you can let us know if you see any necessary edits for the text. We do not do grammatical or spelling reviews of the abstracts, we rely on you and your students to do that.

  • If you see no errors, then the submission is complete. No further action is required on your part. 
  • If you see an error or did not approve the submission please respond to

Please remember that these abstracts will be published with both the students and mentors names on them, so it is imperative that you have collaborated and have approved the abstract.
