Call for Abstracts

Our membership is full of creative, talented people. Here’s your opportunity to share your editing innovations and ideas with other editors at the annual meeting of INANE in 2018.

The 2018 Planning Committee welcomes your submission for breakout and for poster presentations beginning November 15, 2017 and continuing until January 31, 2018. Presenters will be notified of their acceptance by March 1, 2018. The final, complete program for INANE 2018 will be published on April 1, 2018.

Please review the general information below before submitting your abstract. When you are ready, use our convenient online abstract submission form!

Details: Posters will be presented on a table. All meeting rooms will be equipped with wi-fi access and standard audio-visual equipment. The presenters of all breakout sessions will be asked to submit their PowerPoint presentation two weeks before the conference to facilitate planning.

Attendance and Honorarium: At least one presenter is expected to be on-site for the poster or breakout presentation. No honorarium will be offered, however, discounted conference rates will be in effect until April 30, 2018. Presenters are encouraged to register early.  After May 1, all attendees will be expected to register at the full conference rate.

Breakout Presentations will be presented during sessions that are scheduled for 50 minutes in length. We request that presenters make their session interactive, with at least 15-20 minutes of the session scheduled for questions, discussion, and participation with the audience. In the abstract, please specify the interactive activities that will be included in your presentation.

Posters will be table-top displays for convenient casual viewing throughout two of the conference days. You can use the table top in any way you wish.

Presenters may be anyone who shares the essential purpose of INANE: to promote best practices in publishing and high standards in the nursing literature. Nursing journal editors, associate editors, members of editorial boards, peer reviewers, authors, publishers, interns, and all interested colleagues are invited to submit an abstract for consideration. As INANE is a global initiative, we welcome abstracts from our international colleagues as well as those based in North America.

Topics are limited only by the presenter(s)’ imagination. However, based on past experience, topics that are of ongoing interest to the INANE membership include: generating content; peer review; scientific and technical writing; linking research, education, and practice; running the editorial office; working with publishers; connecting with readers; developing authors; developing peer reviewers, ethical issues; Open Access; impact factors; stewardship; succession planning; online publication; social media.
