To date, Green has authored or coauthored four books and over 100 journal articles and book chapters. The varied topics of his scholarship include experimental research methods, voter turnout and persuasion, political party identification, prejudice and hate crime, rational choice theory, public opinion, and statistical methods.

He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2003 and was awarded the Heinz I. Eulau Award for best article published in the American Political Science Review during 2009. He is an affiliate of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab.

In December 2014, Green and UCLA graduate student Michael LaCour published a highly publicized study, When contact changes minds, on attitudes towards same-sex marriage, in Science. In May 2015, however, Green requested that the article be withdrawn after colleagues and former students identified misrepresentations and data "irregularities" in the paper.

In 2016, Green was appointed the John William Burgess Professor at Columbia University. He was named Faculty Advisor of the Year by Columbia's Political Science Graduate Student Council.


Donald Green has designed several boardgames. Green has invented OCTI, OCTI-for-Kids, Jumpin' Java, Mouse Island, Razzle Dazzle, Knight Moves, Fishpond Mancala, and Dupe. In 1999, OCTI was named “Best Abstract Strategy Game of the Year” by Games magazine.
