I recently finished a project that has accepted for publication in a preventive medicine journal.
I was hoping to submit the abstract to some conferences to improve my presentation skills, and my supervisor informed me that I should make sure my paper is not published before the abstract is presented.
The journal has given us a 12-week ETA on publication, and both conferences I was hoping to present at are much later than that (16-24 weeks). As a result, I was wondering what my possible options are? So far, I have four questions:
If my paper is accepted for an oral presentation instead of a poster presentation, could I still present them if the paper has been published?
Could I ask the journal to put a hold on production so I can present at these conferences?
Does it matter if one of the planned conferences is not international / if they do not publish abstracts?
Should I contact the managing editor to ask if I may present the abstract at the planned conferences?
