Call for nominations: 5th Exeter Prize for Research in Experimental Economics, Decision Theory, and Behavioral Economics

The University of Exeter Business School will award a prize of £2,000 for the most outstanding article published in a refereed journal in 2016 from the following fields:

-Experimental Economics
-Decision Theory
-Behavioral Economics

Papers can qualify under any one of the following categories:
1. Any paper that involves either lab or field experiments.
2. Any purely theoretical paper that involves “behavioral” theory (for example, non-expected utility).
3. Any empirical work that shows evidence for behavioral models (that fit under 2) or tests/rejects models (that fit under 2).

In addition to the monetary prize, the author or representative from the authors of the winning paper will be invited to present that paper and related research at the University of Exeter in the Fall of this year.

We would like to invite you to nominate a paper. To qualify it must be published in 2016 and in one of the above-mentioned fields. The date must be the in-print date rather than the on-line date. You may send the nomination via an email to the following address: feelmail at exeter.ac.uk. Please write ‘Exeter Prize Nomination’ in the subject field. Note that you are allowed to nominate your own papers.

We will generate a shortlist of papers from the nominations. The shortlist will be evaluated by a panel, who will then decide the winner. This year our panel members are:

– Glenn Harrison (Georgia State University)
– Michael Mandler (Royal Holloway University of London)
– Michel Regenwetter (University of Illinois)

The deadline for submitting a nomination is May 1, 2017
