This year we are introducing a new symposium format where individuals submit proposals for single paper presentations that fit themes selected by the Program Chairs, and 3-4 submissions will be selected per theme by the Program Chairs. There will be three themes this year for this format:
Open Science in Addiction Research: Challenges, Opportunities, and Future Directions
Novel and Underused Approaches in Addiction Psychology
Expanding the Horizons in Addiction Research: Diversity Considerations
Each presenter will submit a summary/abstract (225 words) for their proposed contribution to the symposium.
Peer Review Process & Evaluation Criteria:
The CPA 2022 Program Committee aims to be as transparent as possible considering the peer review process. Symposia submissions will be reviewed specifically by the two Program Co-Chairs (Drs. Priscilla Lui & Keanan Joyner). Submissions will be rated according to four review criteria.
1. Overall Quality / Importance
2. Innovation / Originality
3. Approach / Methodology
4. Diversity Considerations
Each criterion is rated on a scale from 1-7, (1 = very good / high priority; 2 = good; 3-5 = average; 6 = poor; 7 = very poor / low priority / no mention of diversity considerations). An average score across the reviewers is generated for each submission. Abstracts with high discrepancy in scores will be reviewed by an additional reviewer.
