Call for nominations: Student Research brief
SPP seeks submissions for the Student Research Spotlight for feature in Progress Notes. This feature is designed to give graduate students a chance to share their novel and creative in-progress research with our readership.
This feature is not intended for the presentation of data, whether preliminary data or finished data collection projects, but rather to describe the purpose, design, methods, and potential implications of their study in an abbreviated format.
An ideal project submission is a dissertation research project for which the proposal has been approved by the student’s dissertation committee and data collection is on-going. While submitted research descriptions do not have to be part of a dissertation project, projects should represent work for which the student played a leadership role in the design conceptualization of the study.
To be eligible, individuals must currently be working towards their doctorate in psychology. Individuals who have received their PhD are not eligible. Submissions should focus on research with a pediatric psychology or child health psychology focus and be no more than 800 words in length. Submissions should include three main sections: background and purpose, design and methods, and potential clinical/ research implications.
Submit research descriptions to Laura Simons.
Deadline for the spring issue is January 5, 2013.
