The NACADA Research Committee, the NACADA Center for Research at KSU, the Theory, Philosophy, & History of Advising Community, and the NACADA Annual Conference Advisory Board are pleased to offer this new “session type” at the 2021 NACADA Annual Conference. Please see below for more information about Scholarly Papers:
What is a Scholarly Paper?
A scholarly paper addresses an issue or question that either has been the subject of ongoing discussion/debate among scholars or that perhaps has not been recognized as a salient issue but should be. This paper may argue for a novel position on the issue at hand, or may argue for a familiar position in a novel way. The argument makes use of the methods and epistemologies of one or more academic discipline, and does so in a way that (in addition to supporting the paper’s position) models the academic discipline(s), as applied to advising.
What is required at the proposal stage?
The proposal should include:
- A well-crafted title
- An abstract of no more than 135 words
- A narrative of no more than 1,000 words which outlines the issue(s) or question(s) the paper will address, including a clear description of the methods and epistemologies of one or more academic discipline.
