We have identified that the best results are achieved when the authors put the appropriate time and effort into the preparation of their abstracts. Good results are achieved when the authors read the instructions carefully, and pay attention to detail 1. If you have read this far, you should probably be spending more time working on your abstract. Seriously, the instructions really aren’t that complicated. We just want things to look nice. Don’t forget the abstract deadline of March 31, 2015. We look forward to seeing you at Surface Canada 2015 in Saskatoon!  P. Smith and J. Black, J. Quality Science, 123, 456 (2015).
