Reliability as source[edit]

Since there is no peer review or significant editorial control, I take it that citations to SSRN would not count as citations of a reliable source? --Wtshymanski (talk) 21:45, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

New comment: This entry about the blog Social Science Research Network appears to have been written by someone associated with the entity being reviewed.. I believe this entry should be considered for deletion.

Questionable Statement[edit]

I find the following statement hard to beleive:

 "In economics, and to some degree in law (especially in the field of law and economics), almost all papers    
  are now first published as preprints on SSRN and/or other paper distribution networks such as Research Papers in 
  Economics (RePEc) before being submitted to an academic journal."

I'm an economist and this has definitely not been my experience. I think that someone should either provide a source for this statement (especially the "almost all" part) or remove it. Derek Pyne2 (talk) 22:45, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
