The Royal Economic Society prize was introduced in 1990, the year of the Centenary Volume of the Economic Journal. It was awarded to the author of the best non-solicited paper published in The EJ over a two-year period. Since 1996, the prize has been awarded annually. A committee consisting of the RES President, a representative of The Economic Journal Editorial Board and one member of the Society Council, selects the winner. The prize of £3000 is awarded at the RES Conference in the year following publication.
