The MOLS2 conference is keen to recognise and encourage early-career researchers focusing on survey methodology.
Earlier in the year submissions were invited for the Student Paper Award. This prize was open to current students and recent graduates and asked for papers that addressed any topic which fell within the scope of the conference.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of the Student Paper Award 2018 is Ruben L. Bach from the University of Mannheim for his work A Methodological Framework for the Analysis of Panel Conditioning Effects.
There are also two highly commended entries:
Caroline Vandenplas, University of Leuven, Jessica M E Herzing, University of Lausanne and University of Mannheim, and Julian Axenfeld, University of Mannheim, for A Method for Optimizing Reminder Procedures During Data Collection of an Online Panel: A Data-Driven Approach.
Nicole James, University of Essex, for 'Tis the Season: Seasonal Effects and Panel Attrition.
All our winners will be presented with their awards on the first day of the conference. Congratulations!
