Submission Policies

In order to be considered for the 2020 Program, all participants of each submission must consent to and comply with the following SPSP Policies:

  • Submissions are welcomed for Symposium and Single Presenter Submissions in the Science category and for Professional Development and Workshop submissions in the Professional Development/Training category.
  • An individual may be submitted for only one submission for each of the following submission types: Single Presenter, Symposium, Professional Development/Training, for a maximum of three submissions in any role as presenting/first author, chair, and/or speaker. If an individual is found to be included in any of these roles on more than one submission of each type, all associated submissions will be voided before review.
  • An individual can be accepted for a maximum of two submissions as follows: one submission in the Science category (symposium or single presenter) and one submission in the Professional Development category (75-minute session or Deep Dive Workshop). If a presenter’s symposium submission AND single presenter submission are both selected by review panels, the single presenter submission will be declined and the symposium will be included in the program.
  • All chairs/speakers/presenters must be members of SPSP for 2019 in order to participate in the convention program.
  • All chairs/speakers/presenters must be paid registrants of the convention in order to participate in the convention program.
  • NOTE: Data collection and analysis do not have to be complete at the time of submission. The purpose of this change is to allow people to present newer research at SPSP, since there is a delay between the time of submission and the actual conference. We also want to be consistent with larger changes in the field regarding evaluating the scientific rigor of the methods versus the significance of the results, somewhat akin to pre-registered reports for journals. Note that although data collection does not need to be complete at the time of submission, we do require a clear indication that data collection and analysis will be done by the time of the conference. This means that you should only utilize this new option if you are certain that the study will be done by that time.
