Online Paper Collection


Online Paper Collection

Each year, APPAM has access to hundreds of high quality research papers presented at the Fall Research Conference.  This year, for the first time, APPAM seeks to build a repository of the best papers presented at the conference. This will make topical and relevant policy research available to practitioners and policymakers throughout the year, soon after the research is presented for the first time. It is our hope that this repository will continue to grow, through the nomination and addition of new cutting edge research papers selected from the conference material that is presented annually.

APPAM will be publishing 25-30 of the best papers from this year’s conference in the online repository. We are asking for your help in identifying those papers. In the event that you are unable to read all the papers in your session, please solicit the discussants’ opinion. We ask you to use the following criteria to identify nominees:

  1. The complete paper was submitted to you and the discussant(s) before the conference and is clearly written.
  2. Neither you nor the discussant found any important methodological shortcomings or misinterpretations of results.
  3. The paper is in good enough shape that it would likely receive at least a “revise and resubmit” from a good quality journal.

In many sessions, no paper will meet those criteria—many good conference papers are still a revision away from being ready to submit to a journal. You are under no obligation to nominate any papers. You may nominate more than one, provided they meet the criteria.

To nominate a paper, send an email to with the subject line “APPAM online repository nomination” and attach an electronic version of the paper (word or pdf) to the email. In the body of the message, please include the paper title, author’s contact information, session title/date/time, and APPAM conference policy area. Nominations are due by Wednesday, November 27, 2013.

Final decisions will be made by APPAM’s online repository committee. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Evans or Greg Acs.

Thank you in advance for your help.
