Submission (closed)

DNAqua-Net Conference Abstract submission

prerequisite : You must be registered before submission :

> Oral and Flash-talk : abstracts have to be submitted to Oral Arpha collections
> Posters: abstracts have to be submitted to Poster Arpha collections

You will be using Pensoft`s ARPHA online publishing platform to submit your abstract to ARPHA Conference Abstracts (ACA).

1.   Please register or log in at (check spam if you receive no confirmation mail)

2.   Click „Start new Abstract
If you have already started an abstract and are coming back to work on it, log in to ARPHA directly from After logging in, you will see your work in “My recent manuscripts”. You can also start new abstracts from there, but you will need to specify the journal (ACA) and the manuscript type (conference abstract).

3.   Click „Collections“ in the top navigation bar and select "1st DNAQUA International Conference" and either "oral" or "poster" session.

4.  Fill abstract`s metadata.
The only mandatory fields are „Title“, „Author“, „Abstract“, „Keywords“, „Presenting author“ and „Presented at“.

5.  Add co-authors by clicking the icon beside „Authors“ in the panel on the left.

6.   Copy text (maximum 600 words incl. references).
You may add references, one figure, and one table by clicking on the appropriate icons on the left. You may also upload supplementary materials associated with the abstract. If you wish to include references, start creating a reference list, so that you can later link it to your text.

 7.  When done click “Submit for Technical Review.
The status of the manuscript will be indicated as “In pre-submission review”. During the technical review, you can access the abstract in read mode only. You will need to wait until you receive an official notice that your feedback has been requested.

 8.   The technical editors may accept or reject your submission, or may request changes, or suggest that the Programme Committee move your submission to a different session.
Note that if a submission is returned to you for changes, its status will return to Draft.

 9.   Once the abstract is approved, you will be able to see the “Submit to the journal” button in your manuscript submission. Before clicking on it, use the “Validate” button to make sure there are no lingering issues.
A successful validation will show the number of characters in your abstract.

 10.   Please go through the checklist of submission steps.
You need to check the license and copyright of your abstract. The default is CC-BY 4.0 with copyright attributed to the authors. However, if any author is a U.S. or Canadian government employee, you must specify CC-0. Any other issues should be referred to the journal’s Help Desk.

 11.   If, after your manuscript has been approved, you fail to complete all of the steps, you may see it tagged as “Incomplete Submission”, even if an ID has been assigned to it in ACA. Because this now has an ACA- identifier, you must access actions to complete the submission (or delete it) via the ACA website (, instead of ARPHA’s.

If, at any time, you need further assistance, check the "Tips and Tricks" link ( or if you fail to find an answer to your question, send an email to the journal’s technical staff via “Helpdesk” on the top bar.
