In a retrospective study design, the abstracts were divided into either oral presentations(OP) or poster presentations(PP), type of the study; trial design, first author%u2019s name and affiliated institution, mean publication time and journal name were analyzed.Result: From a total of 2417 abstracts, 114(4.7%) were found to be published as a scientific full-text article. While the conversion rate of OP was; 24 of 187(12.8%), for PP it was 90 of 2230(4%), and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.001). Experimental studies had the highest publication rate compared to clinical studies and case reports. The publication rate of university-related anesthesia programs was higher than other hospitals. The mean time of publication after the abstract presentation was 14.411.4 months. Discussion: This is the first study evaluating the publication rates of abstracts presented at TARD congress.
