The ESRA Best Paper Award is offered to authors of the highest quality publications in the journal Survey Research Methods. The aim of the award is to increase the journal’s visibility and act as an additional incentive for attracting high quality papers to the journal.

Nomination process: Nominations for the award are made by the Editor and Associate Editors of Survey Research Methods from among all papers published in the journal during the two calendars preceding the year in which the award is presented. The winning paper is then elected by a subcommittee of the ESRA Committee.
