The winning papers were selected by the SPSP Publications Committee (Diane Mackie (Chair), Carolyn Morf, and John Levine). The committee was impressed that each of these papers tackled a societally important issue using sophisticated theorizing and multiple studies with triangulating methods. Each paper makes a significant theoretical and empirical contribution to the field. Congratulations to all three winners and their co-authors.
