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. Nominations open in Spring, so do keep checking back in order to nominate the paper you feel is most deserving of the prize.
Nominations are currently closed but will re-open in Spring 2020.
