Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is a project co-hosted by Stanford Law School, Chicago Booth, Korea University and the European Corporate Governance Institute and is composed by a number of research networks in the social sciences and related fields (economy, law, social insurance, management). Aimed at connecting the business and professional world to the social sciences, this website provides access to hundreds of articles, abstracts, journals, publishers, and institutions through SSRN’s eLibrary. It includes an Abstract Database, with about 390,000 summaries of scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers, and an Electronic Paper Collection, with more than 320,000 downloadable full text documents in pdf format. The eLibrary also includes the research papers of a number of Fee Based Partner Publications, with various options aimed at encouraging readers to communicate directly with authors and other subscribers concerning their own and others’ research. A free trial for abstracts is offered to any user, while full access to SSRN material is through an institutional affiliation and almost all records can be retrieved and downloaded for free from the eLibrary (which receives more than 30,000 papers each six months). An advanced search facility is provided and several visual tips help users to successfully navigate the site’s many pages.
