NPA is excited to launch P.O.D.cast….Posters on Demand

On behalf of the Nevada Psychological Association, you are invited to submit proposals of your scholarly work for NPA’s virtual P.O.D.cast….Posters on Demand. Submissions should discuss research (i.e. psychological research, clinical research, applied research). All submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by a review committee. We welcome your involvement in our organization and encourage you to seek membership in NPA.

What is NPA’s P.O.D.cast?
P.O.D.cast (Posters on Demand) is NPA’s fresh take on a traditional poster session. This virtual format encourages participants to think “outside of the box” and allows their research to have more visibility while saving money and time! NPA’s P.O.D.cast will consist of individual research “video posters.” These videos will consist of no more than 7 slides (including the cover slide), last no longer than 5 minutes and can incorporate a QR code that links to the participants’ full research. Videos will be posted online for public viewing and promoted on social media. For an example of what we’re looking for, NPA recommends viewing the “Better Poster” video.

How are Virtual Posters judged?
Virtual posters will be judged online by a panel of psychologists during a pre-scheduled live meeting via Zoom. Posters may report on empirical (quantitative or qualitative) studies or non-empirical (theoretical/review) projects. Research will be judged on the following: professionalism, conceptualization, methodology (empirical only), conclusions and overall contribution to the discipline. The panel of psychologists will review each of the virtual posters and determine the winners, which will be announced at our 29th Annual Conference, which is scheduled for Friday, April 30th, 2021 via Zoom webinar.

What do winners of the P.O.D. cast receive?
NPA’s P.O.D.cast offers special recognition to participants who have the most exemplary posters. Three cash prizes are awarded: 1st Place $200, 2nd Place $100 and 3rd Place $50
