Call for Nominations

EAAE Publication Awards for 2017 

You can now submit nominations for the Research Discovery Award and the Policy Contribution Award in honour of Giovanni Anania

The Publication Awards program of the European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAAE) recognizes professional excellence in research contributing to the advancement of knowledge in areas related to food, agricultural and resource economics.

The Publication Awards program of the EAAE includes three annual Awards:

  • the Outstanding ERAE Journal Article
  • the Research Discovery Award
  • the Policy Contribution Award in honour of Giovanni Anania.

For the Outstanding ERAE Journal Article Award, all articles published in the Review in 2017 are automatically eligible. The recipient is selected by the ERAE Editorial Board; there is therefore no formal nomination procedure.

For the Research Discovery Award and the Policy Contribution Award in honour of Giovanni Anania, outstanding publications can be nominated by members of the Association, including self-nominations.

The EAAE is now seeking nominations in the two categories of Research Discovery Award and Policy Contribution Award in honour of Giovanni Anania for journal articles published in the calendar year 2017. Please don’t hesitate to nominate your own publication or to nominate colleagues’ publications.

The EAAE has decided to open a separate Award category for books. The announcement will be made in 2019.

Publication Awards are a quality signal from the profession. They are good for CVs!


The nomination procedure is very simple:

  • Send by email both your own contact details (as in your business card) and the article in pdf you wish to nominate, specifying the concerned Award (Research Discovery or Policy Contribution);
  • Send nominations to the Secretary-General of the Association (eaae@wur.nl) by the 15th of March 2018.
  • Members of the current Publication Awards Selection Committee (see below) are not eligible to be nominated for an Award.
Nominated publications can enter the selection process only if at least one of the authors is a member of the EAAE at the time the selection process starts.

The Award recipients are proposed by the Publication Awards Selection Committee. Recipients of Awards will be presented at the next EAAE triennial Congress in Prague August 25-28, 2020.

The Research Discovery Award

The research must be a significant scientific contribution to the field of knowledge in any of the areas of agricultural economics. The work should demonstrate excellence in research and may present a theoretical or methodological innovation.

Journal articles must have been published in 2017. The date of publication is that of the issue; articles available online in their final form on the journal’s web page, for which the 2017 issue in which they will appear is unequivocally known are eligible for the Award, even if the issue has not been published in print yet. Maximum one award is given.

EAAE members who wish to make a nomination for this Award (including self-nomination) should send the nominated article in pdf form together with their own contact details (as in their business card) to the Secretary-General of the Association (eaae@wur.nl).

Publications nominated for the Research Discovery Award should be in the English language.

The Policy Contribution Award in honour of Giovanni Anania

This Award recognizes an outstanding publication that contributes to policy, either ex-ante or ex-post. The purpose of the Award is to recognize excellence and encourage interest in applied economic analysis that can provide timely and relevant information for more effective policy debate and decision making. It demonstrates the contribution of our profession to societal discussion.

Journal articles must have been published in 2017. The date of publication is that of the issue; articles available on line in their final form on the journal’s web page for which the 2017 issue in which they will appear is unequivocally known are eligible for the Award, even if the issue has not been published in print yet. Maximum one Award is given.

EAAE members who wish to make a nomination for this Award (including self-nomination) should send the nominated article in pdf form together with their own contact details (as in their business card) to the Secretary-General of the Association (eaae@wur.nl).
