Legal education and research for Law academics: Open access repositories

Using SSRN

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is an open access online repository devoted to the rapid dissemination of social science research. The Legal Scholarship Network (LSN) is part of SSRN. 

A feature called CiteRight shows where a paper on SSRN has been cited by other researchers, both in papers on SSRN and across the Web.

Check, or negotiate with, your publisher so that you know which version of an article, paper or chapter is permitted for upload to an open access repository. Quite often, a pre-print is permitted. If unsure, discuss with the University's Copyright Adviser, Megan Deacon.
