Review Criteria

The 2018 AEC Review Committee will review all submissions based on quality, relevance, impact, and originality. Prospective presenters are welcome to reference products as long as product references add to the educational value and are presented in a noncommercial fashion.

  1. Quality: Presentation submissions should be well organized and easily understood. The abstract and summary are judged as indicators of what can be expected of the session.
  2. Relevance: Presentation submission should be highly relevant to the interests of the environmental health audience in general and the track topic in particular.
  3. Impact: Presentation submissions should contribute to the educational mission of NEHA. Submissions reporting on emerging environmental health issues, important results, methodologies, or case studies of special significance will be favorably considered. 
  4. Originality: Presentation submissions on innovative technologies, case studies for innovative designs, or other novel results that contribute to NEHA’s goal of providing a high-quality educational program for practicing environmental health professionals will be favorably considered.
  5. Commercial content: Product promotion is not permitted. Evidence of product promotion in presentation submissions will lead to rejection of the submission. It is acceptable to use a product in a design case study or as a proof of concept for a design methodology.

Note: The 2018 AEC Review Committee reserves the right to request edits to submitted presentations or to reject a submitted presentation if it does not meet review criteria or follow submission guidelines.
