Submitting papers to the APA Pacific Main Program

Since I have heard from some APA folks that they are keen to increase the diversity of traditions represented on the APA main programs, it makes sense to pass on the below reminder here. 

Paper submissions for the 2018 APA Pacific Division meeting in San Diego, California, are currently open. Submissions close at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on September 1. If you have a paper you would like to present, please you submit it as soon as possible at the paper submissions website. We urge you submit your paper before 2 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, September 1, after which there will be nobody available at the national office to provide technical assistance.

Here are a few important reminders about Pacific Division submissions.

  • All authors of each submitted paper must be current members of the APA.
  • The author’s name must not appear anywhere in the paper file or the abstract.
  • Both colloquium and symposium submissions require an abstract of no more than 150 words.
  • Both colloquium and symposium submissions require a 750-word synopsis, which should be clearly labeled within the paper document.
  • The Pacific Division does not accept submissions that include both a symposium and a colloquium version of a paper. Each submission must be either one or the other.

To submit a paper or to participate in the meeting program, authors must be current members of the APA. Please be sure to renew your APA membership. If you’ve just joined, you’ll need to create an account in the paper submissions system—one will not be created for you automatically.

Before submitting, we recommend that you review the paper submission guidelines, since papers that do not comply with these guidelines will not be reviewed. If you have any questions about paper submissions, please contact me.

All the best,

Mike Morris
