Abstract Review Criteria

The following criteria will be applied in the review of all abstracts submitted for conference presentations:

Of particular importance are abstract technical quality, and relevance to the evaluation community. Abstracts that are simply descriptive without analysis should be considered of low quality.

  • Relevance to the evaluation community: Is the topic likely to evince interest among evaluation practitioners, managers, commissioners and/or users?
  • Quality: Does the proposal meet high professional quality standards?
  • Improvement of evaluation capability or skills: does the abstract focus on material that potentially improves evaluators’ capabilities? and/or the value/role of evaluation?
  • Creativity and innovation: Is the proposed contribution likely to generate a fruitful debate through the dissemination of new ideas and innovative approaches, potentially going beyond the “business as usual”?
  • Public interest: Is the proposed contribution likely to advance the public interest through the promotion of diversity and equity, cross-cultural exchanges, diversity of perspectives?
  • Gender equality: consideration of gender-related aspects and intersectionality. Abstracts incorporating gender-related reflections and intersectionality will be given priority, ceteris paribus.
  • Evaluation In An Uncertain World - Complexity, Legitimacy And Ethics: alignment with the overarching theme of the conference, whilst not mandatory, is recommended.
