Student Paper Competition

Student members of ILABA, or those no more than one year post-grad, are encouraged to submit original papers of basic or applied behavior analytic research. The student paper competition winner will be invited to present the winning paper on Friday April 13, 2018 at the 2018 Annual Conference, be awarded $50, and have their conference registration waived.

Papers must be formatted for journal submission, and those under review (but not yet accepted/in press) are eligible; papers accepted for publication are prohibited. Theses or dissertations that have not been reformatted for publication will not be reviewed.

The following criteria will be used to determine the winner of the paper competition:

BASIC RESEARCH

1. Has application for a socially relevant behavioral phenomenon.

2. Uses strong single-subject or between-group methods, with clear demonstration of control.

3. Is likely to be of interest to an audience inclusive of practitioners, applied researchers, and basic researchers.

APPLIED RESEARCH

1. Directly deals with a socially significant behavioral phenomenon

2. Uses strong single-subject or between-group methods, with clear demonstration of experimental control.

3. Is likely to be of interest to an audience inclusive of practitioners, applied researchers, and basic researchers.

The winner of the Student Paper Competition should be prepared to provide a 30-min presentation on their research, followed by a 20-min discussion. During submission, you may identify someone to serve as your discussant. Should the winning submission not have a discussant identified, a member of the ILABA Board will be assigned as appropriate.

To submit an entry for the paper competition, please complete this form. Submissions are due by March 2, 2018 and the winner will be notified by March 16, 2018.
