Specific Guidelines for Research Papers

Specific Guidelines for Research Papers

Guidelines research papers

Research papers can be conceptual or empirical. A conceptual paper can raise an interesting question, and through dealing with this question, arrive at a richer and possibly transformed challenge, which helps us perceive the question in a new way. An empirical paper addresses new research ideas and raises questions that have been explored empirically.

Abstracts should not exceed the maximum limit of 700 words. The author(s) name and information should NOT appear anywhere on the abstract.

Abstracts should be structured under the following headings:

  1. Objectives
  2. Approach
  3. Results
  4. Implications
  5. Value/Originality

If a research paper abstract is deemed more appropriate for the Practitioner Development Workshops by reviewers, authors will be asked if they want to move their contribution to the PDW. If affirmative, they will then be required to follow the PDW format in submitting a more developed version of the proposal, and preparing a workshop session for the conference.

If the research paper proposal is accepted, you will be asked to submit a short paper version by the 15th of May. The short paper should be 3-4000 words, have the same structure as the abstract but must also include a short literature review. Feedback on this paper will be given during the conference.
