Representation: Journal of Representative Democracy

About the prize

The Representation Best Paper Prize is our flagship award given to the most outstanding papers. Each year, we welcome all our readers to nominate papers published in the previous year, and the editorial board select the winners from the nominations. There are two prizes available: the overall winner, and runner-ups who receive an Honourable Mention. 

The annual "Representation Best Paper Award" is open for entries.

Eligible papers are those published in hard-copy in 2020 (Volume 56). This year, nominations are invited from the editorial advisory board members, reviewers, submitting authors, and the readers. The Award committee, consisting of the Editorial Team will review these and vote to award the prize to the best paper in the shortlist.

The 2020 Representation Best Paper Award will be announced in September, 2021.

Any enquiries may be directed to any of the Editors at any point in time. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

The deadline for submitting nominations for this award is July 31, 2021.
