Deadline: July 15, 2016
This award is presented to the author(s) of the paper judged to be the best paper presented at the most recent Urban Affairs Association conference. Recipients are given a $1000 honorarium and a complimentary registration to the subsequent conference where the achievement is officially recognized, including the presentation of a plaque that describes the award.
All conference papers submitted for review to the Journal of Urban Affairs are eligible for the award. Papers are subjected to the normal JUA review process, and finalists are determined by composite review comments. The award winner is selected by an ad hoc committee designated by the chair of the Governing Board. The committee reports its decision to the Executive Director and the Chairperson of the Board. The Executive Director informs the award recipient of the outcome.
Papers that are accepted for publication through the review process will appear in a subsequent issue of the Journal of Urban Affairs.
