The worldwide Social Science Research Network, SSRN (see our former blog ‘what is SSRN’ about the Amsterdam law School Series on SSRN), recently released the ability to view a PDF in the browser; simplifying access and opening up a host of capabilities for readers and mobile users.
Over the next few months, SSRN will release the following improvements:
1) Advanced Search for SSRN’s eLibrary (which will allow users to filter by subject network in addition to search term, author name and paper date);
2) allow authors to upload a photo and CV to their SSRN Author Pages;
3) greatly improve the ability to find and select a co-author during the submission process;
4) create comprehensive Organization Home Pages that present a summary of individual organizations’ activity on SSRN with easy access to their authors, papers, metrics, Research Paper Series, Conferences, and rankings.
