SCORING RUBRIC

The following areas will be considered by reviewers when scoring abstract submissions:

Criteria

1)  Importance of the topic

  • Is the topic area original/important/relevant to the conference theme?
  • Are the aims of the study clearly described?

2)  The approach (design/methods)

  • Is the study design appropriate for the stated research question(s) and aims?
  • Are the methods/ methodological approach clearly described?
  • What is the overall quality of the study methods employed (or proposed)?

3) Findings

  • Are the key findings clearly described?

4) Consequences (significance)

    • How important are these research findings?

Peer review process

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed independently by at least two peer reviewers. The aim of this process is to ensure a high quality program of presentations and a lively, informative meeting. We welcome interesting, well designed and well conducted work at all stages of development / delivery and ask reviewers to give equivalent weight to abstracts relating to work-in-progress and completed work. The main focus of our peer review process is the extent to which submissions meet the criteria for quality, relevance and importance.

Ranking

1 = did not meet expectation
2 =  partially met expectation
3 =  met expectation
4 = exceeded expectation

The purpose of this journal is to disseminate knowledge and novel ideas related to post-secondary transition, college and career success. This journal is appropriate for researchers, teachers, mentors, curriculum designers, college and career counselors, administrators, and policymakers who are interested in the intrapersonal, social, and educational factors that affect a successful transition from high school to post-secondary school or employment. The journal welcomes scholarly manuscripts from a variety of theoretical perspectives and empirical approaches.

  • Our paper acceptance policy is based on three criteria (one is sufficient to be accepted): (a) the academic credentials of the scholar (b) his/her institutional affiliation and (c) Ph.D./Ed.D Students wishing to present part of their doctoral thesis. An effort is made to keep a weighted balance, both countries and level of academic career of the contributor (Ph.D. /Ed.D. Students, Researchers, Lecturers, Assistant Professors, Associate Professors, Professors, etc). In many cases, the committee might ask for the entire paper before it evaluates a proposal for presentation. If it is accepted, the paper is accepted for presentation NOT for publication. For the papers, we do provide reviewers’ comments to the authors. For all our conferences, we issue three calls (first, second and a final) with an approximate deadlines: 8 months, 6 months, and 4 months before the conference dates. The acceptance rate of the second and final call depends on the number of participants registered as a result of the first call. For obvious reasons, registrations deadlines for presentations differ and are stated in each acceptance letter.
  • An effort is made to have researchers from as many countries as possible.
  • Acceptance to present DOES NOT guarantee publication. All papers submitted are evaluated according to standard methods of independent blind review process by the editorial board. Editors are drawn from the world community of academics and researchers. The decision to choose editors is the responsibility of the Editorial Board. We do publish conference proceedings in the Future Review. Read more about our publication at: www.worldfutureforum.org/publication.
  • All papers presented at our conferences are blindly reviewed by our editorial board. Papers NOT PRESENTED by their authors and only by their authors are not considered for publication in the Future Review and they do not appear in the program.  All papers submitted for consideration to publish in Future Review must be original works and not previously published. Editorial Board’s decision is based on the rubric located in the RUBRIC tab above.
  • Conference proceedings are produced after the conference.

If you have any inquiries, suggestions or need further information please send us an email at info@worldfutureforum.org.

POSTER SESSION
PRESENTATION GUIDELINES

The World Future Forum Planning Committee will work with each presenter before the conference to make sure familiarity with the

virtual or in-person conference platform needs are met.

 

Presenter Submission Presentation Requirements
  • Presentation

Format of Presentation 

These poster presentations will be a 10 – 20 minute session with the first half consisting of a presentation and the second half for additional questions from attendees.

 

Presentation 

Each presenter must submit the final version of their poster to info@worldfutureforum.org by April 8, 2022 to avoid any last-minute issues. We will have the presentation ready in the poster presentation session. Accepted format option:

  • 10 – 12 presentation slides. Presentations with more than 12 slides will not be penalized, but it is strongly recommended to stay within the mentioned range. Please save PowerPoint slides as a PDF or Google Slides presentation

 

Video Summary 

As this is a virtual conference, our attendees will not have the ability to browse your poster in a poster hall. To overcome this we have decided to allow our presenters to record a 30 second to 1 minute video describing a brief summary of their research for our attendees to view before and during the conference to assist them in providing additional questions for the presenter during the scheduled poster presentation sessions. We recommend using Zoom to record this video. Here are instructions on how to do this through Zoom. Please feel free to record in any way that you choose as long as the recorded session is in landscape mode.

Please reach out to info@worldfutureforum.org on how to send this recording. The deadline to send this recording is by April 8, 2022.

You are welcome to use the following template we have created  World Future Forum – Poster Presentation Template

 

Visuals

  • Use “visuals” (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your “story”
  • Present numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables (graphs make trends in the data much more evident). If data must be presented in table form, KEEP IT SIMPLE
  • Visuals should be simple and bold. Leave out or remove any unnecessary details
  • Make sure that any visual can “stand alone” (i.e., graph axes are properly labeled, maps have north arrows and distance scales, symbols are explained, etc.)
  • Use color to enhance comprehension
  • Make sure that the text and the visuals are integrated. Figures should be numbered consecutively according to the order in which they are first mentioned in the text
  • Each visual should have a brief title (for example: Figure 1- Location of study area)

 

Miscellaneous Suggestions
  • SIMPLICITY IS THE KEY. Keep to the point, and do not try to cover too much. Present only enough data to support your conclusions. On the other hand, make sure that you present sufficient data to support your conclusions.
  • When you begin to make the pages for your poster, first create a list of the visuals that you would use if you were describing your project with only the visuals. Write the text after you have created the list of visuals.
  • Before the poster session, rehearse a brief summary of your project. Don’t be afraid to point out uncertainties in your work; this is where you may get useful feedback.
  • Make sure that your poster can be seen on a video conferencing platform. To check the readability use the following video conferring platforms: Zoom, Cisco Webex, Google Meet, Google Hangouts, or any other platform you have access to
  • Practice your brief presentation. You will be given 10-20 minutes to present your research and answer additional questions towards the end of the session from attendees.
    • Keep in mind of the following items during your presentation
      • Be mindful of your camera, audio, and screen
      • Introduce yourself
      • Use your slides efficiently and effectively
      • Present for a Range of Expertise
      • Tell a Story
