THE SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL
STUDENT RESEARCH COLLOQUIUM
ORAL PRESENTATION SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
WHAT SORT OF RESEARCH MAY BE SUBMITTED?
Presentations may contain original research or scholarship that you may be conducting, work that you already submitted for a classroom project during the previous fall semester, or work in progress for the Spring semester. Some students also use the Colloquium as an opportunity to present research proposals or scholarship for which they are contemplating an in-depth study. Research does not have to be experimentally based. Humanities, business, engineering, legal, physical sciences, and social science topics are all welcome.
TU STUDENT AWARDS:
First - $250, Second - $200, Third - $150, and three Honorable Mentions of $100 each.
Winners must have or obtain a social security number in to receive their award checks.
Volunteer TU/OU-Tulsa students, faculty, and administrators from a variety of academic disciplines.
Judging Criteria (Coming in January 2014)
REQUIREMENTS FOR PRESENTERS:
1. Complete online application and abstract submission form by clicking here.
The student presenting the research must be the senior author of the abstract.
Maximum of 750 words for submitted abstracts.
Title and student author’s name each on a separate line with a blank line between the title and the student author’s name. Type the title in all caps and the author’s name in upper and lower case. If any co-authors are faculty or professionals external to the University, they may not be first author and their names should appear on the line following the student author’s name. Please get the permission of all noted authors before submitting abstract.
2. Ask your research/project advisor to verify the suitability of this project for the Colloquium by printing Abstract Submission Confirmation Page, getting advisor’s signature and returning by Friday, February 14, 2014 to the Graduate School, Lorton Hall 201, c/o Hope Geiger.
Not required of OU-Tulsa participants.
The areas of concern that Project Advisors must evaluate are listed below:
Faculty is expected to evaluate the submission for potential patent issues on behalf of The University of Tulsa. If the submission content discloses ideas that may be patentable, the faculty should advise the student to meet with Dean Janet Haggerty, who will work with the student and faculty to guide them with the patent application submission process. The University of Tulsa does not want to lose the opportunity to patent TU research on behalf of the student because of premature disclosure to a public audience. After patent application is submitted (if appropriate), a student may publicly present the research.
Faculty is expected to evaluate the student’s submission for research involving human subjects. If human subjects were involved, did the University of Tulsa Internal Review Board (IRB) review and approve this research? If not, the faculty should not sign the confirmation page and should advise the student to meet with Dean Janet Haggerty. Review of proposed research by the IRB is intended to ensure that research activities involving human subjects safeguard the rights and welfare of human subjects as required in federal regulations. You must submit a copy of your IRB approval letter with the signed Confirmation Page to the Graduate School before a presentation may be approved for the Research Colloquium.
3. Attend Cross-Disciplinary Presentation Skills Workshop in March 2014 (Location & Time TBD).
(Attendance strongly encouraged but not required for participation in the Research Colloquium)
4. Deliver a 20 minute oral presentation of your project at the Colloquium, leaving 3-5 minutes for question and answer period.
