Academic papers can be uploaded directly to the site by authors as PDF documents. All author-uploaded papers are available for worldwide free downloading. Users can also subscribe to abstracting e-mail journals covering a broad range of subject matters. These eJournals then periodically distribute emails containing abstracts (with links to the full text where applicable) of papers recently submitted to SSRN in the respective field. Since its foundation in 1994, SSRN has grown in importance in the academic community. 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 on other paper distribution networks such as RePEc before being submitted to an academic journal. On SSRN, authors and papers are ranked by their number of downloads, which has become an informal indicator of popularity on prepress and open access sites.
