The World Association of Public Opinion Research awarded us the Robert M. Worcester Price for the best paper 2019. Our paper “Is Facebook Eroding the Public Agenda? Evidence from browsing tracking data” was considered the best manuscript published in the International Journal of Public Opinion Research. The lead co-author, professor Ana S. Cardenal (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) delivered an acceptance speech during a virtual ceremony celebrated in October 202o, on behalf of Carol Galais (Universitat de Barcelona) and myself. We all thanked the jury for this recognition, which encouraged us to keep advancing our research agenda.
We competed against 39 outstanding papers also published in 2019. The jury valued our novel combination of survey and browsing tracking data to measure citizens news media diets and its effects over the public agenda. Moreover, they highlighted our contribution to advance in the measurement of the political fragmentation in the online domain, which remains still very elusive.
