2019 CENTRAL STATES COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION
PRESIDENT’S UNDERGRADUATE HONORS RESEARCH CONFERENCE
Call for Submissions
April 5-6, 2019
The 2019 Central States Communication Association (CSCA) President’s Undergraduate Honors Research Conference (UHRC) will be held Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 during the 88th annual CSCA convention in Omaha, Nebraska. The UHRC offers undergraduate students an opportunity to share their original research projects and provides a forum through which they can inquire about graduate study, meet graduate faculty, and interact with some of the leading scholars in the discipline of communication. The UHRC features a graduate school open house and an awards luncheon.
The UHRC is open to students who were enrolled as undergraduates during the 2018 calendar year (spring, summer, and/or fall). Submissions must have been completed by those students (not coauthored with faculty) during the aforementioned year. Only completed papers as WORD documents will be accepted as submissions. Papers must not exceed 25 pages (excluding references and tables/appendices), must conform to the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, and must be accompanied by a completed CSCA 2019 UHRC Submission Form located on the CSCA website (www.csca-net.org). This submission form requires advisor contact information.
After reviews are completed, both the student author(s) and the advisor will be notified of the submission’s status and the presentation format. If accepted for the conference, the submission may be programmed as a paper to be presented on a traditional panel, as a paper to be presented in a roundtable format, or as a poster to be presented at a poster session.
Both the student author(s) and the advisor must view submitting a conference paper as a professional endeavor and responsibility. Accordingly, the student author(s) agrees/agree to register for the conference and to present at the conference if the submission is programmed. The advisor agrees to ensure that the student author(s) will register for the conference and will present at the conference. Failure to do so may result in submissions under the direction of the advisor and from the advisor’s institution not being programmed at future conferences.
Please send completed submissions (including submission form and paper with no identifiers) to CSCA President Amy Aldridge Sanford at amy.aldridge.sanford@
Submissions must be received no later than Friday, January 11, 2019.
