J. David Singer Data Innovation Award

Awarded biannually, the J. David Singer Award recognizes projects which contribute to the enterprise of systematic data based work on conflict, international or domestic. The two primary criteria are impact and innovation. Projects with high impact influence the research of many others by providing data sets or tools which are used widely in the field. Innovative projects change how we think about data in any number of ways, such as what we can collect as data, how we collect it, and how we analyze it. Projects which create public goods for the community of scholars who study conflict systematically are those that the award seeks to recognize.
