Instructions for all submissions

~~Submissions not adhering to guidelines will be automatically rejected~~

• Prepare an email with the subject heading "PMEA 2017 Research Submission." If you submit only one proposal, that subject heading is sufficient. If you submit more than one proposal, please send a separate email for each. In the subject heading, add a number at the end to signify to which submission your email corresponds (e.g., PMEA 2017 Research Submission 1).

In the body of the e-mail, indicate
a) if the research is in-progress or complete;
b) each author's name, institutional affiliation, cell phone number, and preferred e-mail address;
c) when applicable, if the author is an undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral student; and
d) the option corresponding to the submission type: Option 1: Poster Only, Option 2: Poster and Research Presentation, or Option 3: Poster and Research-to-Practice Workshop (completed research only).

• Please attach to the e-mail the required corresponding document(s) listed below for the submission option selected. Authors should include no information within the body of attached documents that identifies them as the authors.


• For all options, please attach a one-page abstract in only Word doc or docx format. Within the abstract, authors should provide the title of the research, and explicitly state the purpose of the research, questions or problems of the study, subjects, design, and analysis. For completed research, also provide the results and how they inform practice. Name the Word file with the primary author’s last name and submission type (e.g., Smith.Poster, Smith.Poster.Paper, Smith.Poster.Workshop). If submitting more than one proposal as a primary author, please add a number at the end of the file name that corresponds with the number you added in the email subject heading (e.g., Smith.Poster.1).

• If submitting for Option 3 (Poster and Research-to-Practice Workshop): In addition to the one-page abstract, attach a one-page document offering details about the organization and content of the workshop-style presentation. Name the second file with primary author’s last name, and WorkshopOutline (e.g., Smith.WorkshopOutline). In the Workshop Outline document, include a title for the workshop, a description of the session appropriate for the conference program (10 words, maximum), and workshop session outline with details for an 45 minute-long workshop-style presentation based on applications of the completed research, followed by 15 minutes for a Question and Answer session (i.e., 60 minutes total workshop time). Please note: In the outline, clearly feature how the workshop presentation bridges the submitted research specifically to practice, and actively engages the audience in the research topic.

• If the research submission is based on a completed Undergraduate Honors Paper, Master’s Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation, attach the signatory page of the final paper in addition to the attachments corresponding with the option selected. Name the file with your last name, signatory page (i.e., Smith.SignatoryPage). With that documentation, such projects are automatically accepted for presentation at the poster session.
