The EBSS Research Forum is moving online!
The Education and Behavioral Sciences Section Research Committee invites proposals for presentations at a virtual research forum to be held online in early May, 2019. The Research Forum offers librarians an opportunity to present research that is currently underway in a 10-minute lightning talk format. Lightning talks will be selected via a competitive, blind review process.
Proposals are due March 18, 2019. Applicants will be notified regarding acceptance the week of April 1.
Proposals will be evaluated based on the extent to which they:
1. Measure or investigate issues of high interest to librarians, especially those in Education and Behavioral Sciences.
2. Represent innovative, original research.
3. Show evidence of carefully planned research design and thoughtful analysis.
4. Clearly identify what stage of the project has been completed and estimate a timeline for the remainder of the project. Research that has been previously published or accepted for publication by January 1, 2019 will not be considered.
