Code of Conduct

Get ready

Upload your Paper
By uploading your Paper via My ECPR, you agree for ECPR to publish the Paper on the event app accessible to all participants. To access uploaded Papers in your Panel, log in to the event app and navigate to the Papers tab under Programme. If available, click the Download Full Paper button on the Paper information page to get the PDF.

Please upload your Paper (in PDF format and in English) well ahead of your presentation so that your fellow Panel attendees have time to prepare comments and questions.

  1. Head to My Events in your My ECPR account.
  2. Click Manage Paper > Browse > Select your Paper > Open/OK > Upload.
  3. Click View Document to ensure that it has been uploaded successfully

You can also use this facility to replace your Paper or remove it after the event. Contact us if you have questions about uploading your Paper.

If you prefer to share your Paper with fellow panellists directly, please email it to your Panel Chair.
