Early Stage Research Sessions
The Early Stage Research sessions are designed to allow scholars to submit early stage research (e.g., proposals, pilot studies) and receive feedback on their theory and research design before collecting data. Submissions should have clearly stated research question(s), well-developed theory and hypotheses based on the relevant literature in the area, and a proposed research design. Submissions should not exceed 10 pages. Authors will give 10 minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of senior faculty discussant feedback and 5 minutes of open dialogue among the session participants.

Although preference will be given to early stage scholars (Assistant Professors and Ph. D. Students), all are invited to submit their early stage research for consideration. Interested scholars should indicate their interest in participation in the Early Stage Research sessions on the title page of their submissions and send them directly to Andrea Kelton by Wednesday, November 1, 2017.
