Mentoring Program

Bond University

The ICSPP 2017, together with the Tactical Research Unit at Bond University, is pleased to provide an abstract mentorship program. The mentorship program will be available from the 1st of January to the 1st of June 2017. No new submissions to the mentorship program will be accepted after the 1st June 2017. The mentoring program is entirely separate from the formal abstract submission and review process. As such, participating in the mentorship program and gaining feedback from that process does not guarantee that an abstract will be accepted for presentation at the ICSPP 2017.

The mentorship program is designed to provide emerging researchers, researchers with a first language other than English, or those with limited experience in submitting an abstract for a scientific congress with support in preparing their abstracts. The goal of the ICSPP 2017 mentorship programme is to help authors prepare their abstract clearly and concisely prior to submitting their abstract to the formal abstract review process. Participation in the mentorship programme is entirely voluntary.

Participants who choose to take-up this opportunity should prepare their abstract per the submission guidelines and forward it to the Tactical Research Unit at Bond University (tru@bond.edu.au). The abstracts should be provided in either a Microsoft Word document or imbedded within the email as plain text. Each abstract will be reviewed by a minimum of two researchers with a PhD and research experience in tactical populations. Feedback will be provided with advice on ways that the abstract could be enhanced prior to formal submission.
