New Interface for Social Science Research Network

The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is working on a new interface for its large collection of open access research papers:

" After spending time thinking about different approaches to display large quantities of articles, we created the eLibrary Viewer. "

"The eLibrary Viewer places search results in the left hand column of the page. Each result displays hyper-linked title and authors, and the first few lines of the abstract. In addition, we included buttons to open the full abstract page in another window; view citations, references, and footnotes where available; add the abstract to a user’s MyBriefcase; and share, email, or download the paper. These features will allow readers to quickly review and share multiple articles without having to go back and forth between the results and the content pages."
SSRN hosts an electronic library with abstracts, full bibliographic data, and full text for close to 200,000 scholarly papers.

The Legal Scholarship Network is one of the many SSRN e-Libraries available.
