Additional Information for First Authors

  • Empirical, theoretical, and review presentations are eligible for submission. Presentations are not acceptable if you merely propose a research study without actually doing it. Data collection should be done in time for your presentation at the conference.

  • Abstracts are not peer-reviewed before being accepted. They are "accepted" upon submission.

  • Presenters are expected to be undergraduate students, although they need not be psychology majors. Psi Chi membership is not required for participation.

  • Students can be a first author on only one presentation, but may be a co-author on other presentations. The first author is assumed to be the primary presenter. 

  • If you are a co-author and the first author is not attending, register as the first author so you can submit the abstract. 

  • Faculty sponsors should not be listed as co-authors. (Submissions are not peer-reviewed and the focus of the conference is on undergraduate research.)

  • We cannot honor requests to present at particular times on the day of the conference.

Abstract Guidelines:

  • There is a 400 character limit on the abstract (approximately 65 words). You can check characters at: http://www.lettercount.com/ (spaces count!)

  • The abstract should follow the APA guidelines for abstracts.

  • Given the word-limit (65 words), you may need to restrict your abstract to the most important information (e.g., Goal/RQs, Task, Results, conclusion) and avoid information that you would have presented for longer abstract formats. Please consult your faculty sponsors for details.

  • Type your abstract on the submission page, or copy and paste it from a plain text editor like Notepad so that quotes, hyphens, or other unusual characters display properly in the printed program.

Presentation Options

Students must choose one of the following options for their presentations: 

  • Talk. Students who are presenting will be expected to give a 10-minute talk with 2-3 minutes for questions.  

  • Printed Poster (Limited to the first 20 presenters who select this option at the time of registration). Please view the Poster Guidelines
