Manuscript Prize Jan Veuger

Winner of American Real Estate Society (ERES) 2018 Manuscript Prize Jan Veuger

August 27, 2018

On behalf of the American Real Estate Society (ARES) and our entire leadership team, it is my pleasure to announce the winners of our 2018 ARES Manuscript Prize Competition.  This year, 270 papers were presented at our 39th Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Of that group, 155 were subsequently revised and nominated/submitted for consideration as a “Best Paper” recipient in one of 22 categories. Submissions in each prize category were evaluated by an expert panel of judges with unique knowledge of that area, with several categories requiring multiple rounds of evaluation to determine an ultimate winner. I appreciate our manuscript prize sponsors, conference sponsors, paper reviewers, and authors who supported the 2018 conference and this competition.

Having not seen this side of the competition before, I must say that am very impressed and humbled by the work and contributions of so many in our organization, particularly our anonymous reviewers.
