Undergraduate researchers who are writing proposals for the 2020 CCCC Undergraduate Researcher Poster Session may submit proposal drafts for peer feedback and coaching via Eli Review. This opportunity will be available October 14-November 1, 2019. (See timeline details below.) Proposal authors who submit a draft for feedback must be willing to provide peer feedback on at least one other draft.
How can I participate in the feedback process?
To participate in the peer feedback and coaching opportunity:
- Follow the directions in this PDF document to create your Eli Review account. Thanks to Eli Review, your account is free for CCCC Undergraduate Researcher Poster Session tasks.
- Submit your proposal draft by composing or copying/pasting in the Proposal Draft writing task in Eli Review by 11:45 PM on October 26, 2019. (See more details below.)
- After you’ve submitted a draft, you’ll be assigned another undergraduate researcher’s draft to review. We’ll ask you to describe what you see the writer accomplishing in the draft, to evaluate how the draft meets the proposal guidelines, and to suggest specific strategies for strengthening the proposal. Complete your assigned peer review by 11:45 PM on November 1, 2019.
Proposal authors who submit earlier during the process will be paired with other authors who have submitted their drafts early; in other words, you do not need to wait until October 26th to submit your draft. The earlier you submit, the earlier you’ll receive feedback.
What should I submit on Eli Review?
To receive feedback on your draft, submit a poster presentation title and a 400-word proposal that:
- Explains your research project,
- Indicates the anticipated status of the project by March 2020 (note that projects may just be beginning, or still in-progress, when you submit this proposal),
- Discusses your interest in sharing your research with CCCC attendees, and
- Identifies your mentor or supervising faculty member (name, professional title, and email) for your research project. If you are collaborating with a team, please also discuss your role in the research project.
If your research involves human participants and your school has an institutional review board or ethics review process for research, your proposal also should indicate if you have (or plan to apply for) IRB-approval for your research.
Proposal drafts are due by 11:45 PM on October 26, 2019, so that you can complete a peer review by 11:45 PM on November 1, 2019. Proposal authors who submit earlier during the process will be paired with other authors who have submitted their drafts early; in other words, you do not need to wait until October 26th to submit your draft. The earlier you submit, the earlier you’ll receive feedback.
Revised proposals are due via the online submission website (NOT via Eli Review) by November 18, 2019.
