Submissions should not be under review or published elsewhere prior to the conference. No more than two papers per registration will be accepted; one for oral presentation and one for poster presentation. The IAPRI 2018 Conference offers two streams for paper submissions: GENERAL and PEER REVIEW.


Abstracts submitted to the general stream undergo a review by selected members of the IAPRI 2018 Committee based on originality, scientific quality, innovation and significance to the research community.

Abstracts may be submitted as oral or poster presentations. The Committee reserves the right to assign final presentation type in the best interest of the program. However, the Committee will accommodate as many oral presentations as the conference schedule permits.

Submissions approved by the IAPRI 2018 Committee will result in the authors preparing full papers for the conference which will be published in the conference proceedings.


  • Abstracts must be written in English and must contain 150 - 300 words.

  • The title should clearly define the topic and contain no abbreviation. Capitalize only the first letter of the first word.

  • Spell out completely the names of all authors using full first and last names.

  • Abstracts must address the following: Introduction, objective, methods, results. Indicate also the major findings of the study.

  • The abstract must cite quantitative data from representative experiments. Do not simply state that the results will be discussed.

  • Do not include references.

  • Standard abbreviations may be used as follows: on the first use, spell out full term and follow with abbreviation in parentheses.

  • Authors must select an abstract topic (only one) from the main topics from the event.

  • Authors are encouraged to submit only two abstracts. No more than two abstracts will be accepted per registration.

  • The data presented must be not published before the meeting.



Successful submissions will be published in the Journal and will be presented as oral presentations at the conference.

Conference proceedings will contain only the abstract of papers accepted via the peer review stream. Papers not accepted for peer review will automatically enter the general stream, unless author specifically denies it in advance.
