For poster submissions, we invite research projects that are in-progress. Posters can be comprised of research ideas, new theoretical perspectives, pilot data, and so forth. The primary difference between a poster submission and paper submission is the ‘completeness’ of the research. Posters are still in-progress, and will be editorially reviewed rather than going through the full peer review process. Posters are a great way to gain valuable insight from your peers in executive doctoral programs and faculty experts.

An example poster template (that we use at USF) can be accessed here: EMS-2017-Example Poster-3×4-Portrait
