COPS has another winner. I've just learned that the Political Communication divisions of ICA and APSA have named Young Mie Kim's recent Journal of Politics paper the 2006 top paper in political communication. This is of all papers published in the area of political communication during 2006, not just all papers submitted to these two association conferences. This is a very prestigous award. Congratulations Young Mie! You might recall that a paper co-authored by Chip Eveland won this award last year.
