SOEP-Price of the Association of Friends of the DIW Berlin

About the SOEP and the "SOEP-Price"

In November 2001 the best SOEP-Papers of the years 1999-2001 were honored. Out of more than four hundred registered publications in SOEPlit - the interactive literature survey about publications based on the SOEP data - 39 were nominated.

The prize winners were chosen by members of the GSOEP advisory board: Prof. Daniel S. Hamermesh, Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin, Prof. Dr. Gisela Trommsdorff, University of Konstanz, as well as from Prof. Dr. Gert G. Wagner, SOEP Director and European University Viadrina, Frankfurt/Oder.

The Laudatio was given by Prof. Wolfgang Wiegard, member of the SOEP advisory Board/University of Regensburg.


Association of Friends of the DIW Berlin

The prices are funded by the Association of Friends of the DIW Berlin (Vereinigung der Freunde des Deutschen Instituts für Wirtschaftsforschung).


Price Criteria

The price criterias are as following:

1. Does the study use the longitudinal aspects of the SOEP?

2. Is the study just comparative (a negative factor) or does it take Germany seriously on its own? In other word: Is the study original work or merely a replication for Germany of work done on another country?

3. On the margin: The quality of the journal counts.


Three price categories are established

1. Best Paper(s)

2. Best Junior Paper(s), author(s) not older than 35 years of age when published) and

3. Best Policy Paper(s).
