New $25,000 prize for 2012
NEW $25,000 AWARD FOR 2012
Journal of Real Estate Research
The Journal of Real Estate Research (JRER) has a new set of best paper awards. As you know, currently there are two best paper awards ($5,000 and $10,000) for papers published in the JRER. In April 2007, the awards ($5,000 and $10,000) were given for two papers that were published in 2006.
For April 2011, the top award will be increased to US $25,000. This means that there will be three awards ($5,000, $10,000 and $25,000) for papers published in the JRER during 2009 and 2011. Again, the winners of the awards will be based on the votes of the JRER editorial board.
The top two papers published in JRER for years 2007-2008 as determined by the editorial board of JRER are as follows:
The 1998-2005 Housing Bubble and the Current Correction: What’s Different This Time?
William Wheaton and Glab Nechayev
