ITAX PhD Student Award
Starting in 2017 the Annual Congresses will feature the ITAX PhD Student Award, introduced by the journal International Tax and Public Finance (ITAX).
The ITAX PhD Student Award is open to any current PhD student presenting at the IIPF (defined as anyone who is registered as a PhD student for the congress).
The award comes with a $1,000 prize and an opportunity to publish in the journal. This publication can either be a full-paper submission (where the editors will work towards an expedited but otherwise normal referee process) or a short 5 page summary of the paper and its main findings (comparable to the American Economic Review Papers & Proceedings). Please note that if the winner chooses the latter, this does not preclude the author from a full paper submission at a later date.
The award decision will be based on the paper and the candidate's presentation; and only submissions presented at the IIPF will be considered as a result. There is no restriction on co-authorship and submissions may be co-authored with senior colleagues, but the PhD student must present it at the congress.
The 2017 ITAX PhD Student Award has been awarded to Daiki Kishishita (The University of Tokyo, Japan) for his paper Emergence of Populism under Ambiguity.
