J. David Singer Data Innovation Award
The J. David Singer Data Innovation Award is given for the best data contribution to the study of any and all forms of political conflict. The award recognizes a specific contribution rather than a body of work across a career. Contributions can include the collection of a specific data set, a tool that aids the analysis of data, or other innovative work that has advanced empirical work using reproducible data. In addition to innovation, impact of the project on the research of scholars other than the nominees is a key element of the contribution of a nominated project. Nominations must be made by a member of the Conflict Processes section; self-nominations are welcomed. Nominations should identify the project and its contribution as well as the scholars being nominated. Scholars of all rank are eligible for the award.
Deadline for Nominations: March 15, 2023

The award recognizes individuals who have made substantial contributions to the study of conflict processes, in particular: demonstrating outstanding mentorship to junior scholars; providing noteworthy service to the APSA Conflict Process community; and through a significant body of exceptional research fundamentally improved knowledge of conflict processes.
