The Libraries subscribe to the Financial Economics, Economics Research, Legal Scholarship, Accounting Research, Management Research, and Entrepreneurship Research and Policy Networks.

Includes hundreds of journals, publishers, and institutions in Partners in Publishing that provide working papers for distribution through SSRN's eLibrary and abstracts for publication in SSRN's electronic journals.

The SSRN eLibrary consists of two parts: an Abstract Database containing abstracts on over 477,100 scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers and an Electronic Paper Collection currently containing over 387,700 downloadable full text documents in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. The eLibrary also includes the research papers of a number of Fee Based Partner Publications.

The Networks encourage readers to communicate directly with authors and other subscribers concerning their own and others' research. To facilitate this we publish detailed author contact information including email addresses for authors of each paper. We also provide electronic delivery of the papers when authors wish us to do so from the SSRN eLibrary.
