We invite submission of full research papers, which address one of the conference themes. Our definition of research is inclusive, encompassing informed scholarship and critical reflection, as well as empirical and evidence-based study. We welcome papers that offer: synthesis and re-interpretation of existing research; critiques of developments in practice; theoretical arguments or conceptual frameworks; critical / reflective analysis; innovative research methodologies; collaborative research studies which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Papers should not exceed 5000 words, including references and any appendices.
Evidence-based research papers should be completed research (work in progress should not be submitted), and include the following:
- research methods
- results/findings with discussion and conclusions
For papers in non-evidence based scholarly traditions, no guide is provided besides:
- the body of the paper
- and references.
Full details of paper style and format can be downloaded here.
We expect that presentation of the research at the conference will be 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions.
