2015 SOEPprize

The selection process is currently underway for the next SOEPprize (official name: the VdF Best Publication Prize) for publications based on the SOEP data. Two years ago we made some changes in the decision-making process for the award, and now the final decision rests with the SOEP Survey Committee. The selection process is also no longer based solely on nominations but on all publications submitted to us and archived in SOEPlit within the two-year eligibility period. The current period is 2013 and 2014.

Nevertheless, we are grateful for suggestions of publications that would qualify for the best scientific publication by a junior researcher aged 35 or younger (suggestions to: ). We hope to be able to report decisions on the winners in the next SOEPnewsletter (109/ July 2015).
