We are excited to announce our move to early Autumn - September 19, 2014 - for the 26th National Symposium on Doctoral Research in Social Work. Whether you are considering presenting your work, volunteering, or simply soaking in great research, remember to save the date!
Abstracts are submitted to and reviewed by the symposium committee and are selected based on their contributions to social work knowledge, research methodology, and contributions to social work practice and policy. Selected abstracts are then paired to form three to seven presentation sessions.
A nationally recognized scholar and researcher is invited to deliver the keynote address focusing on the importance of social work research. Dr. Elizabeth Segal, Professor at the School of Social Work Arizona State University delivered the keynote address this year. Other recent keynote speakers include Dr. Michael Spencer, Dr. Lorraine Gutierrez., and Dr. Paula Nurius.
The Proceedings of the National Symposium on Doctoral Research can be found on The Ohio State University Libraries' Knowledge Bank.

The Student Poster Presentation is organized by the Doctoral Student Organization (DSO). A committee comprised of DSO members and College of Social Work faculty reviews and selects student abstracts for the Student Poster Presentation. Symposium presenters serve as judges for these posters and prizes are awarded. Previous posters are archived on the Knowledge Bank - see Student Poster Sessions.
