SSRN Community: 2022 was a spectacular year for SSRN, we crossed 200 million downloads to date and exceeded one million full-text papers from over one million authors. The SSRN platform continues to grow significantly, more than doubling in size over the past year. Most recently, a landing page was created for the interdisciplinary Special Topic Hubs. The Hubs aggregate research from a variety of disciplines on the SSRN platform with a focus on important current issues, such as long standing hubs for Coronavirus and Race & Social Equity, and event related hubs for International Women’s Day and Pride Month.
SSRN will take a distribution break 18 December 2022 to 3 January 2023 and resume on Wednesday 4 January. During this time SSRN will not distribute eJournals or announcements. However, our staff will be working; supporting the Special Topic Hubs, processing submissions, answering emails, and providing support as usual.
While the world continues to face hard problems, I believe sharing and discussing research is one of the best ways to solve them. Please read and share research on SSRN – it really matters. The entire SSRN team loves helping to distribute this research because we know it makes a difference. And, share your stories with us through email and social media. Our social media links are below, including our newest channel on Mastodon.
Thank you and as always, please let me know what you like about SSRN or how we can make it better.
Wishing you and yours a very happy and joyous holiday season!
