If a student is the primary author, he or she may submit no more than one proposal for the poster presentation and no more than one proposal for the oral presentation. However, the proposals must be different research projects. There is no limit on the number of proposals submitted per co-presenter.
All proposals will undergo a rigorous evaluation. Proposal reviewers will evaluate submissions based on the criteria listed below and will assess overall merit within the context of the specific academic discipline.
Proposals should strive to:
- Address important issues in psychology
- Appeal across a variety of audiences
- Demonstrate a strong assessment of evidence
- Be informed by relevant theory, practice, and research in the field area
- Cleary state objectives and outcomes (or anticipated outcomes)
- Be well-written (tone, grammar, spelling)
- Give implications and be applicable to the field area
- Present novel, innovative, or creative ideas
- Clearly, state the topic
- Contain appropriate format (see Guideline for Proposal below)
Note: The focus of each proposal can be either completed research or in-progress research. Having a completed research project by the conference date is not required. Instead, the evaluation will be based on the quality of the research idea and design.
