Review Criteria

Our panel of expert reviewers will choose abstracts based on the following criteria:

Originality - Does the research make a significant contribution to the field of Hispanic Linguistics?
Academic rigor - Are the background, rationale, prior research, and models clearly described? Are specific models being tested? Is the motivation for the study related to just filling a gap in the field, or does the study exhibit a robust foundation in theoretical motivation?
Study Design: Is the methodology (participants, materials, statistical analyses) described in detail?
Measurable Outcome: What is the stage of the research? Are results available?
Presentation: Is the writing clear? Is it appropriately organized? Is the length appropriate?

(Please note that EasyAbs does not send an email acknowledgment of receipt of your abstract.)
