JQD:DM Award Winners!


We are pleased to announce the inaugural winners of two best paper awards! The first award goes to the best paper using data from the global south, either exclusively or as part of a cross-country analysis; the second award is for the best paper engaged in quantitative description on an under-studied phenomenon, hoping to highlight the creative and innovative side of quantitative description.

These awards are drawn from all papers we published through the end of 2023. Moving forward, we hope to make the awards annual or semi-annual.

Congrats to our winners! As a prize, we’re going to be making these papers open access for the next three months! (Just kidding… our manuscripts already are and always will be open access, with no submission or publication fees.)
