To promote the quality and effectiveness of this award, in addition to inviting the finalists to present their papers in person, this year a new requirement has been added, that is, the applicants need to submit their condensed theses in advance which will be examined by external scholars according to the different attributes of criminal law and criminology. It is only after passing both reviews can the finalists enter the selection process. For those who pass the review, the Academy for the Judiciary will also publish their papers in the form of a collection of monographs. In addition, to promote informatization of criminal policy, the winning entries will also be made available on the "Crime Prevention Research Database" website platform of the Academy for the Judiciary for public viewing and free download.
