All submitters have the opportunity during the submission process to indicate if they would like the submission to be considered for the Best Paper Award. Those full length papers that are accepted will be judged on the submission's quality of research, quality of writing, and alignment of the project to EDRA's mission.
One winner is selected for the Best Paper Award each year and receives a certificate at the Awards Banquet during the Annual EDRA Conference.
