Call for papers digitally with the Abstract Scorecard conference software
Besides being an intuitive system that makes collecting and reviewing abstracts quick and painless, the Abstract Scorecard is also a powerful data collection tool. Optional features such as copyright agreement forms, disclosure collections, and file uploads, position the Scorecard as your all-in-one meeting management system.
The submission experience can by modified with a variety of options. Select which informational fields and types of submissions will be displayed. And the Scorecard doesn't only handle abstracts. Biographies, posters, and papers are just a few of the many possibilities.
Every submission process is unique. With the Abstract Scorecard, you can customize your review questions based on your organization's specific goals.
A grading sheet that helps reviewers judge each abstract objectively is clearly displayed alongside the presenter biography and session information.
Scorecard administrators can break up the workload between multiple reviewers, segmenting the reviews into different groups based on reviewer expertise.
Sometimes there are issues submitting on time. CadmiumCD understands that, so we made it possible to unlock the process after the deadline for specified users.
Reviewers can be designated as 'blind' for complete neutrality. With this option, author information is hidden and reviews are specific to submissions only.
Reviewers can disclose any perceived conflicts of interest and opt out of reviewing submissions based on these.
When reviewers enter the scorecard page, there is limited navigation. They have a forward, back, and home button, but the rest of the page is designed to keep them focused on the task at hand. There is also a button they can use to review a list of all the reviews they've been assigned. They can see the score they gave, which abstracts they rejected or accepted, and how many reviews they have left to go.
Your reviewers can see the average score they've given to all their reviews in comparison to the scores they've given specific reviews. This will help them properly determine which abstracts to accept and reject. Administrators can see not only how many reviews are incomplete and complete, they can also view login statistics and which types of tasks were performed during those logins, along with a variety of other data.
With the Abstract Scorecard you don't have to manually enter all your review data into a spreadsheet. The system will do it for you!
You get an online dashboard that allows you to visualize quick stats including reviewer logins, completed reviews, and cutoff deadlines.
Access a breakdown of completed abstract reviews complete with reviewer comments and averaged scores. Accept or reject abstracts instantly using a drop-down menu.
The Abstract Scorecard doesn't just do call for papers. Collect posters, grant proposals, award submissions, and so much more. Streamline your organization's collection & review processes for any type of documents!
This was very nice! No complaints or suggestions for improvement. Perhaps the easiest technology platform I have encountered in public health.
My experience with the submission process was excellent; the system is very clear and user-friendly. I believe the self-assessment is quite tricky to complete in case of basic-science abstracts. Perhaps it could be re-formulated to adapt to different abstract types (clinical vs. basic science) or removed altogether when uploading basic science abstracts.
