Abstract submission guidelines and information
INEBRIA is a network of people with common interests and aspirations for brief interventions. Our aims and objectives require us to help raise standards of brief interventions research.
Abstracts on any aspects of screening and brief interventions (SBI, also known as Early Identification and Brief Intervention (EIBI)) for alcohol and other drugs use are welcomed.
In accordance with this year’s conference theme, we strongly encourage submissions that present work on innovative methods that take the intricacy of SBI into account and integrate combinations of delivery modes, on new models and theoretical approaches that delineate intervention content, by using current information technologies, unique settings and target populations (such as SBI in the context of harm reduction within vulnerable populations).
The network would like to be as inclusive as possible and conferences are perhaps the best way INEBRIA has to raise the quality of research by enabling people to learn from more experienced researchers and make valuable contacts. Thus, these submission rules are not meant to prevent people from attending our conferences but we do encourage you to submit worthwhile pieces of work of sufficient quality to warrant international attention, and thus as far as possible, meet the standards of prestigious peer-reviewed journals. Current direct employment by the corporate alcohol industry precludes individuals from presenting anything at INEBRIA.
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee. Abstracts will be reviewed independently and in duplicate. When reviewing, special attention will be paid to the following criteria:
- Clarity (interpretability)
- Importance to the field of brief intervention
Three types of abstracts will be considered (300 word limit—see submission form):
- Program (clinical or educational) evaluation
- Workshops or experiential or theory-based/generating
