The number of poster presentations has grown to more than 650 with more than 1200 students, faculty and guests in attendance.
To successfully participate in this year’s Oklahoma Research Day, use this site to submit your abstract. In doing so, your research project and name are guaranteed to be listed in the abstract booklet. As you submit your abstract, please follow the instructions as you set up an account to submit an abstract. Please make sure to submit all names and emails associated with a research project
Abstract Submission Guidelines
Title: Using capitals and lower case (for words with three letters or less), the title must be limited to fifteen words (e.g. The Diffusion of Information Communication Technologies at the Local Level of Government).
Abstract: Your abstract should contain between 150 and 250 words. Use a word processing program to type your abstract and rely on the word count function to see how many words your abstract has. Based on concise and precise wording, the abstract should include the following: 1) Objective of the research or scholarly work; 2) Thesis or hypothesis; 3) Methodology or approaches to address the thesis or hypothesis; and 4) Summary of the findings or relevant results associated with the project. Below is an example of an abstract for a social science research topic.
Innovations in information communication technologies have contributed to new forms of interaction between governments and citizens in this and other industrialized countries. The adoption of these technologies at different levels of government has contributed to the emergence of electronic-government or e-government designed to communicate information, deliver services, and offer additional avenues designed to interact with and participate in government. Based on a detailed content analysis of government websites in conjunction with descriptive and multiple regression approaches, this study assesses and explains the level of e-government sophistication at the local level of government in the south, using the states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana as case studies. The study hypothesizes that the presence of professional administrators and the increasing levels of organizational resources, socioeconomic wealth, and population enhance e-government sophistication at the local level. While the findings mostly support the hypothesis, local governments in the south, like many municipalities across the country, have not fully embraced the potentials of e-government.
To be listed in the abstract booklet or program, all team member names associated with a research project must be submitted as part of the abstract submission process. Please keep also in mind that participation in Oklahoma Research Day requires Conference Registration, which, among others, will allow you to sign up for the banquet.
