United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology
United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, abbreviated USCAP, is the largest North American pathology organization. Yearly in March, they hold a large conference in a North American city.
The abstracts, for the 2015 meeting, were limited to 2,764 characters (including the authors and affiliations).
The conversion rate from USCAP abstract to journal paper is 36% overall. A further analysis shows that there is a dependency on the presentation type (42-50% for platforms, 32-36% for posters) and subspeciality (range 10-62%).
