What is the Social Science Research Network?

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is a world wide collaborative of over 800 leading scholars that is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research. It is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. Each of SSRN's networks encourages the early distribution of research results by reviewing and distributing submitted abstracts and by soliciting abstracts of top quality research papers around the world. The Networks encourage readers to communicate directly with other subscribers concerning their own and other's research. Through our email abstracting journals we currently reach over 80,000 people in approximately 70 different countries.

SSRN's email abstracting journals cover over 400 different subject areas. The Abstract Database contains information on well over 160,300 scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers. The Electronic Paper collection currently contains over 127,400 downloadable electronic documents in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. Our users are downloading over 220,000 full text papers each month.

SSRN supports the Open Access movement by providing free submissions to and downloads from the SSRN eLibrary.
