Each year SRA International has a tradition of publishing contributed papers and professional posters at its annual meeting, which are designed to advance and enrich the body of knowledge of research administration and management as an art and science.

Papers and Posters should represent an important contribution to the research administration body of knowledge or successfully demonstrate significant milestones of success that are of interest or importance. They should not be used as a marketing resource for an institution’s success, but should articulate advances in research administration or management.

Submission is open to any individual whose scholarly or professional interest is related to research management.

Topics must focus on areas of research administration specialization such as:

  • pre-award processes
  • post-award processes
  • international research administration
  • research infrastructure and growth
  • strategic planning
  • financial management
  • computer science
  • research ethics
  • human research
  • animal research
  • intellectual property
  • technology transfer
  • publication standards
  • human resources management
  • other research administration-related areas

Accepted papers and posters will compete for the Best Paper of the Year and Best Poster of the Year Awards during the 2018 SRA International Annual Meeting at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida.
