Excerpt: This is the 17th year of the contributed, peer-reviewed presentation section of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Educational Conference–Research Agenda Conference (ACC-RAC). The following is a brief review of the peer review process for the scientific, contributed sessions for the ACC-RAC 2010 conference. The scientific presentations go through a peer-reviewed selection process; thus they are not invited presentations such as the workshop or plenary sessions. The ACC Peer Review Committee’s mission is to provide an unbiased, double-blinded, peer review process for submissions to this conference.
This year was an especially challenging year in that we received a much larger number of submissions than we have in past years. In spite of the extra submissions and the resulting increased workload, we were still able to complete our tasks and submit decisions to authors and materials for continuing education by the declared deadlines.
