Call for papers digitally with the Abstract Scorecard conference software

Step 1: The Online Abstract Submission and Collection Stage for your Conference's Call for Papers

The Online Submission Stage

Collect abstracts from authors and speakers

The Abstract Scorecard is a powerful data management software that is fully customizable so event planners can organize their conference call for papers the way they want to.
Customize Conference Abstract Scorecards to include a variety of options so that your event's call for papers process is fully customizable.
It's easy for authors to log in and review submission criteria.
Multiple authors can look over the abstract submission so they can make sure their paper will be successful.

Powerful Data Management

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.

Fully Customizable

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.

Log In and Submit

Authors can log in, review submission criteria, then submit their abstracts. They can identify their job titles and organizational affiliations right from the Scorecard. An automated task system sends out email reminders when deadlines are approaching, ensuring everyone has the information they need on time.

Preview Submissions

Multiple authors can preview each submission to ensure it's correct before submitting it. They can submit their abstract proposal immediately, or save a draft if they need to finish it later. Authors have the ability to edit their abstracts up until the submission period ends.

Step 2: The Online Abstract Review Stage for your Conference's Call for Papers

The Online Review Stage

Reviewers grade submissions with an online scorecard

Customize your review questions so your reviewers can grade each abstract objectively.

Custom Scorecards

Every submission process is unique. With the Abstract Scorecard, you can customize your review questions based on your organization's specific goals.

Review questions are displayed next to the abstracts so your reviewers can clearly judge each paper.

Side-By-Side Questions

A grading sheet that helps reviewers judge each abstract objectively is clearly displayed alongside the presenter biography and session information.

Abstract Scorecard administrators can segment reviewers to break up the workload.

Segment Reviewers

Scorecard administrators can break up the workload between multiple reviewers, segmenting the reviews into different groups based on reviewer expertise.

It is possible to unlock the call for paper process after the deadline so presenters, authors, and speakers can submit their abstracts late.

Late Submissions

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,' hiding author information from them, for complete neutrality.

'Blinded' Reviews

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 conflicts of interest and refuse to review certain author submissions based on these.

Recusal Options

Reviewers can disclose any perceived conflicts of interest and opt out of reviewing submissions based on these.

CadmiumCD's Abstract Scorecard allows reviewers to focus on the task at hand without distraction.

Focused Review

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.

A dashboard gives your reviewers and administrators detailer statistics about abstracts, log ins, and reviews.

Detailed Statistics

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.

Step 3: The Online Abstract Selection Stage for your Conference's Call for Papers

This submission form is among the best I have seen. Easy to use, progress saved, clear messages when required data is missing and a concrete confirmation that the submission has been sent! No waiting and wondering.

This is the smoothest online system I have ever used! It was so easy and efficient. I hope more organizations begin to use this set-up-- I was so impressed by it!
