CPA Poster Submission



Poster Overview:

For full details, consult the Call for Poster Proposals section of the main CPA2021 website (also available here in PDF format)

The CPA2021 conference will include multiple poster sessions. Amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) global pandemic, CPA2021 Poster Sessions will be held virtually, in conjunction with the regular symposium and social network programming during March 18-20, 2021. Presenters will be provided with poster size requirements after acceptance. The lead presenter on the poster must submit an abstract (max 225 words) that describes the poster, including background, methodology, results, and discussion/conclusions. See the review criteria below for additional information about how abstracts will be adjudicated so that you can address the required points accordingly.

First-Author Submission Policy for CPA2021: 

To increase opportunity for more attendees to present posters at the CPA 2021 conference, poster submissions are limited to one abstract per first-author. Although attendees may be listed as co-authors on multiple abstracts, you may only submit one poster abstract as first author.

Peer Review Process & Evaluation Criteria:

The CPA 2021 Program Committee aims to be as transparent as possible considering the peer review process. Poster submissions will be peer reviewed by a minimum of 2 doctoral level reviewers. Submissions will be rated according to four review criteria. 
  1. Overall Quality/Importance: Justify that the study addresses significant research questions
  2. Innovation/Originality: Indicate that the study yields novel knowledge in addiction psychology
  3. Approach/Methodology: Summarize rigorous and sound research methods
  4. Diversity Considerations: Discuss relevance to underrepresented minority groups, issues related to generalizability, and/or implications for research with diverse populations
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). An average score across the reviewers is generated for each submission. Abstracts with high discrepancy in scores will be reviewed by an additional reviewer.
