Guidelines for the submission of abstracts 

An abstract is a summary of the work you have completed or are currently exploring. All abstracts should begin with the background to your study, with an outline of what is already known and feeding into the question you are asking. Methods used should be identified and a statement about the significance of any findings should be provided.

It is important that all submissions have a clear summary – participants choose which posters/presentations/workshops to attend based on the information in the abstract.  

A well-written summary can help you draw the right audience to your session. The conferences will attract delegates from a wide range of backgrounds and subject areas so please keep the use of jargon and acronyms to a minimum.

In your submission, please provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Job Title
  • Organisation 
  • Presentation or poster title 
  • Presentation or poster abstract (summary)
  • Delivery model – presentation or poster

Delivery models

A presentation - of 20 minutes followed by questions and discussion.

Contributors are also asked to provide a list of keywords (no more than half a dozen) that will guide readers and help the editing team to categorise abstracts.

Kind regards,

The Scholarship Framework team
