The Programme Committee invites you to submit the abstracts of your activities at the 25th ACCP “Psychology in the promotion and prevention of human rights and social justice” by August 20, 2017. All submissions should be completed only via the Conference submission portal. Activities that are submitted through other channels or after the submission deadline as well as those that do not follow the guidelines will not be considered for evaluation.
- Feedback about the Programme Committee’s decision regarding acceptance of the submitted activity will be sent to the corresponding author by October 1, 2017. The authors of the accepted submissions are obliged to register on time so that their contribution can be included in the conference program and the book of abstracts. The Programme Committee plans to publish the book of reviewed proceedings after the conference and will send the information to the active participants in due time.
- Independently from the topic of the submitted activity, in the preparation and presentation of their activities as well as in discussions during the meeting, the participants are expected to respect human rights, including their fundamental principles as well as the principles of justice. Some basic documents that constitute the platform for considering relevant issues, problems and challenges confronted by the psychologists and collaborating professions can be found on the following links:
- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/Documants/UDHR_Translations/src2.pdf; http//www.un.org./en/universal-declaration-human-rights/
- The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union: http://ethics.elpa.eu/Meta-code/
- The EFPA Meta-Code of Ethics: http://ethics.elpa.eu/Meta-code/
The 25th ACCP is a scientific-professional meeting with international participation. The official languages of the meeting are Croatian and English. The Programme Committee will not consider the abstracts that substantially deviate from the standard of the chosen language.
At the 25th ACCP, one author can submit up to three activities, and he/she can be the only or the first author only in one of them (please note that this applies to the oral presentations; there is no limitation for other forms of participation). In the online submission of an activity, the authors are requested to indicate the desired form of participation. These forms are described in more detail in the continuation of these guidelines, including the rules for abstracts preparation. For all types of participation, the authors should take care of the following:
- Authors are responsible for the accuracy of the data and claims in the submitted abstract. Correction of the abstracts after the submission will not be possible.
- Authors of the abstracts that pertain to the empirical studies should take care that the referred study must be completed at the time of submission as well as that the same results have not been presented or published elsewhere. In case the data collection or analysis are not finished, or the same results were presented elsewhere, the Programme Committee will not consider the submission for reviewing process.
- If an author of the activity that is accepted and included in the program is unable to attend the meeting, he/she is expected to inform the Programme Committee on time. The person registered as the presenting co-author should inform the Programme Committee who among the registered co-authors will be the substitute presenter. Other changes of presenters and subsequent changes of submitted activities are not possible.
