Short Paper Review Criteria

A short paper format of 1500 to 2000 words (excluding references) was used for both the research stream and practice stream. The review criteria assessed whether papers:

  • used, adapted, connected together or critiqued one or more of the MELT frameworks
  • specified the practice or theory gap
  • drew on and synthesised an appropriate literature base that was broader than just the RSD literature
  • contained well-reasoned methods/methodology for research or approach for practice
    • for posters or presentations, work in progress or results/outcomes were presented in ways that fit the data or information*
    • for workshops, there was a clear sense of the activities the audience would engage in
  • were communicative and succinct
  • consistently used one citing/referencing format.

* Qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods data were welcome, with the expectation that typical standards for each type of data should be adhered to. It was acceptable for for outcomes of practice to use a blend of student evaluation data and research vignettes or stories.
