Abstract Submission

The Johns Hopkins Center for Nursing Inquiry invites you to submit an abstract for the 2024 SHINE Conference. We are seeking submissions showcasing nurse-led, inquiry work.

Call for abstracts opens: Monday, September 25, 2023

Submission deadline: Sunday, November 19, 2023, at 11:59 PM EST

The abstract submission period has closed. If you have questions about the abstract review process, or your submission, please contact [email protected].

Submission Guidelines

Review Process

All abstracts will undergo a double-blind peer review process. This means reviewers and authors will not be revealed to one another. Blinded abstracts are sent to a minimum of two independent reviewers. Reviewers are not involved in decisions about abstracts which they have contributed to or have been written by family members or colleagues. The reviewers will evaluate each component of the abstracts for quality and merit using a standardized scoring rubric (0 = Absent, 1 = Poor, 2 = Fair, 3 = Good, 4 = Excellent).

Notification Process

Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the point of contact by January 1, 2024. Only the person(s) listed as the point of contact will receive this notification. The point of contact is then responsible for notifying all authors.
