Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How are IAHPR abstracts rated?
A: At the start of the review process, the names of the authors are removed from the abstracts to allow for blinded review. Next, the meeting co-chairs assess whether each abstract meets the minimum criteria for review and request that all tenured member of the Academy review and rate each candidate abstract along a structured form (Superior, Good, Acceptable, Unacceptable). If a member has a conflict of interest (e.g., co-authorship or mentorship) or the abstract is beyond his or her subject matter capabilities, that member will use a rating of Abstention. Regardless, reviewers are asked to provide clear, written justification for their ratings on all candidate abstracts.
Q: How are the IAHPR abstracts selected?
A: Overall, the selection process is designed to be uniform, transparent, and member-driven. For each candidate abstract, reviewer ratings and comments are summarized and all identifiers are removed. The mean scoring (5*Superior+3*Good+2*Acceptable-5*Unacceptable) is applied uniformly, inherently ranking the candidate abstracts. Using this ranking, the top twelve abstracts are invited for podium presentation and the remaining abstracts with acceptable scores are invited for poster presentation. Alternates to the podiums are promoted, if needed. Abstract presentations are arranged by co-chairs. To assure some balance in the meeting breadth, the program has a minimum of three podium presentations for studies on preferences between health-related goods and services and three podium presentations for studies on preferences between health outcomes.
Q: Do submitters and reviewers receive summary scores and comments?
A: Yes, both submitters and reviewers (i.e., tenured members) receive summary scores and comments regardless of abstract acceptance or rejection. However, abstracts that do not pass the administrative review (i.e., rejected by co-chairs) will have no scores and limited comments.
Q: Can I present multiple abstracts at the same IAHPR meeting?
A: Generally no, each presenter is given a maximum of 1 podium presentation per meeting. However, this rule is relaxed for students, who may have a podium and a poster presentation at the same meeting. If a presenter has multiple abstracts deemed acceptable for a meeting, (s)he must either (1) decline all but 1 podium presentation or (2) make arrangements for a co-author to present the abstract.
Q: Can I present the same abstract at multiple IAHPR meetings?
A: Generally no, the same abstract may not be presented as a podium presentation at multiple IAHPR meetings. However, this rule is relaxed for students, who may present their abstract as a podium at one meeting and as a poster at another meeting, which might be particularly useful for preliminary work.
Q: Can more than 1 person present the same abstract at an IAHPR meeting?
A: No, only one person per abstract is the presenter and will receive credit for her/his participation in the meeting. If space allows, co-authors and non-presenters are welcome to register and attend the meeting, but attendance does not imply participation, which is the basis for IAHPR membership.
Q: What is the difference between symposium, podium, and poster presentations?
A: Poster and podium presentations are selected based on the abstract ratings of the tenured faculty. Symposium presentations are selected by the co-chairs and approved by the Board and tenured faculty. If accepted, each presentations has different requirements. For example, symposium presenters typically participate in panel discussions. Poster presenters give a brief oral presentation (i.e., elevator pitch) as well as respond to questions during the poster session. Unlike poster presentations, symposium and podium presentations count toward tenured membership.
