Welcome to the online proposal submission application for the 15th Academic and Health Policy Conference on Correctional Health.
The team at the Academic Consortium on Criminal Justice Health (ACCJH) hopes you are all doing well during this unprecedented time.
Virtual conference dates, April 6 - April 8, 2022, times will be finalized in upcoming weeks and more information will be shared as the program content is developed.
We invite you to submit your abstract to participate in the conference. We are looking forward to an event rich in learning, networking, and sharing best practices. While the format will be different, we expect that the caliber of presentations and discussions will be on par with previous conferences.
CONFERENCE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
PRESENTATION TYPES AND DESCRIPTIONS
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Submission Guidelines for 15-Minute Papers
· These categories are intended for streamlined presentation of research results.
· The author(s) should submit a structured abstract with the following mandatory sections:
· Research goal(s) and/or question(s) or hypothesis(es)
· Limitations (if any)
While we will accept submissions for which results are pending or preliminary, these submissions will not be ranked as highly as submissions that are complete.
Submission Guidelines for Posters
If submitting a poster of research results, the abstract should follow the “Submission Guidelines for 15-Minutes Papers” above. If submitting a poster with a different type of communication, the abstract should follow “Submission Guidelines for 30-Minute and 60-Minute Presentations” above (except that the factor regarding “teaching design/plan for use of time” may be ignored).
GLOSSARY OF SUGGESTED TERMS
The Board of Directors of ACCJH is conscious of stigmatizing terminology which is often used to describe justice involved persons and populations. As such, we are promoting person- first language which we believe is more humanizing, to describe people who are involved in the criminal justice system. We support recommendations by the Osborne Association and seek to eliminate stigmatizing language in conference print materials, proceedings and presentations. To that end, we ask proposers to exclude the terms below from their proposals and presentations, substituting them with the suggested (or similar) terms.
Terms to be avoided Preferred terms
Convict, Con, Inmate, Prisoner Person who is incarcerated
Offender, Criminal Person in pre-trial or with charge
Parolee Justice-involved person
Ex-Con Formerly incarcerated person
Parolee Person on parole or probation
*Please note- Presentations will be saved at the conference and posted on the ACCJH website (www.accjh.org) unless we are asked in writing not to post it
* Word Limit: All categories have an abstract word limit of 200 words.
*Co-Authors that are not planning on attending the event and presenting should not be listed within this system, but rather, on the presentation itself at the event. Co- Presenters/ Additional Speakers can be added on the review page, after abstract information is filled in. Hit continue on the bottom right, and you will see a box to add speakers on that page.
