In 2008, a new tradition of celebrating and showcasing academic accomplishments was established through Research Day. Over the years, it has evolved into a week-long event filled with multidisciplinary presentations, demonstrations, and lectures. At the University of the Incarnate Word, we take pride in our research and know that through our search for and communication of truth, we become stronger in educating “concerned and enlightened citizens within the global community.”
The Office of Research and Graduate Studies invites all UIW researchers, scholars and artists to submit abstracts or artist’s statements describing their completed projects to be part of UIW Research Week 2020. Faculty, staff and students (undergraduate, graduate and professional) are welcome to submit abstracts. In keeping with the year’s theme, we especially encourage the submission of projects showcasing interdisciplinary, interprofessional and/or international work. Projects presented elsewhere over the last academic year are welcome. All accepted abstracts and artist’s statements will be published in the Proceedings and archived in The Athenaeum.
The poster presentation is open to any discipline and will include a formal poster session.
Podium presentations are open to those who feel their discipline or area of study is better-suited to podium presentations. Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes.
Performing arts submissions are open to any musical, spoken, or theatrical performance. Submissions must be original works by the artist or a presentation/discussion of existing pieces. Please see submission form for additional performance information.
Visual arts submissions are open to any medium lending itself to a gallery setting, including short films. Submissions must be original works by the artist. Please see submission form for additional display information.
The 2020 Service Learning Showcase will be held during Research Week on Monday, March 30 starting at 9 am. UIW community members, that is faculty, students, and staff are invited to share podium presentations or posters submissions that demonstrate service learning and engaged scholarship. We seek best practices, examples, theories, scholarship, and grant writing skills related to all aspects of service learning.
Service Learning at UIW includes community service which a) is required in the class or the program, b) is completed to better understand course or program content, c) reflects concern for the well-being of the community, and d) helps students to reflect, find meaning in their lives, and keep engaged to be good citizens in the future. To see examples of Showcase presentations for the last three years, see the Faculty Service Learning Showcase.
To learn more, see the service and service learning guidelines.
Submissions are selected by faculty committee.
Each individual listed as author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for their contributions to the content (Clever, et al., 1997). More specifically, authorship should be credited to the individuals who contributed in all three areas of
All three of the criteria should be met in order for an individual to be listed as an author. Individuals who contribute solely to general supervision, funding, or collecting data do not sufficiently satisfy the criteria for authorship (Clever, et al., 1997).
Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgements of the final presentation. Including an author who has not contributed significantly to the work is considered a breach of appropriate authorship.
