● All abstracts should be submitted via the online abstract submission system.
● All abstracts must be submitted and presented in English.
● When submitting the abstract, author can choose the preferred presentation method and two relevant divisions or special tracks. The scientific committee will decide the presentation method and in which division/special track the abstract will be presented.
● You can submit more than one abstract in the same abstract category (format and divisions/special tracks) or different abstract categories.
● Corresponding author and presenting author must be identified when submitting an abstract. The corresponding author who submits an abstract is responsible for forwarding all received information to other authors. The presenting author must register to the Congress.
● Authors may modify the saved draft, but further changes cannot be made after the submission.
● Please ensure your abstract does not contain spelling, grammar, or scientific mistakes, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted.
● Oral Presentation: 15 mins duration
● Brief Oral Presentation: 5 mins duration
● Poster: The format of the poster is to be announced later.
● Symposium: no more than 120 mins duration. At least four presentations and/or discussion sections under one topic.
For individual submissions
● Title of presentation: Please choose a brief title (maximum of 100 characters) that clearly indicates the content of the contribution. Please avoid abbreviations in the title. Abbreviations may be used in the text if they are defined when first used.
● Abstract: The abstract must not exceed 250 words. The abstract can be either structured or unstructured. In either format, an abstract should include objectives, methods, main results and conclusion of the study. The abstract should be text only (no figure or image)
● Keywords: Please indicate 3-5 keywords for your abstract.
For symposia submissions
● The symposium organizer should submit the symposia abstract on behalf of all presenting authors. The symposium abstract should follow the requirement of individual submissions.
● The symposium organizer should also submit a supplementary file which contains information of each presentation, including the name and affiliation of the symposium chair and each presenter, the title (maximum of 100 characters), abstract (maximum of 200 words) and keywords (3 keywords) of each presentation, and if there will be any discussion section.
●Do not submit the symposium if you do not have all presentations from your symposium participants.
● The abstract will be reviewed by two reviewers from one division the abstract is submitted to.
● The division review manager will make the decision recommendation to the scientific committee. The Scientific Committee of ICAP2023 reserves the right to accept or refuse the submission; we also have final decision on the method of presentation.
● There are no revision opportunities. However, refused abstract can be revised and re-submitted as a new abstract.
● The reviewer will score the abstract based on the following criteria:
1. Overall quality (originality, readability, question/objective clearly described, etc.)
2. Scientific / Professional Value (importance of the knowledge, idea, evidence, solution, issue, recommendation for science and practice in applied psychology)
3. Relevance (whether the submission has either academic, societal, practical, scientific, or professional relevance)
⊙ academic relevance – extent up to which research perform by investigators on specific topic assist in achieving desired objectives;
⊙ societal relevance – extent up to which information gathered through research or discussion helps in developing understanding about society;
⊙ practical relevance – degree up to which findings of the research can be applied to real-life situations;
⊙ scientific relevance – degree up to which you can fill a gap in knowledge by performing research on a particular topic;
⊙ professional relevance – degree up to which outcome of a research or discussion may help to improve the quality of professional or service activities.
4. Overall appropriateness for inclusion in the program.
