Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. The Networks encourage readers to communicate directly with authors concerning their own and others' research by providing email addresses. Some articles and research papers are available at no charge. Because JHU is not a full subscriber, others are available for a fee, or via other JHU databases.
