UAR Best Paper Award at APSA 2018

Urban Affairs Review is sponsoring a $250 award for the Best Paper in Urban or Regional Politics presented at the 2018 American Political Science Association conference. We encourage chairs of all Urban and Local Politics Section panels to nominate papers. We also welcome self-nominations. Papers presented on any panel associated with the conference are eligible for this award.

All nominations and papers must be received by September 30th.

The award will be made by a three person panel: one editor of Urban Affairs Review, one member of the UAR editorial board, and one member of the executive council of the Urban and Local Politics Section. The committee will evaluate the version of the paper at the time of the APSA conference.

The award will be announced on the APSA Urban and Local Politics section website and the UAR website by December 1, 2018. The recipient will be invited to submit the paper to the Urban Affairs Review for fast-track review and publication.

This is an annual award. Awards may not be made every year, depending on the number and quality of submissions.
