What is SSRN? The acronym stands for the Social Science Research Network and it is the leading open repository that promotes innovation in the social sciences and humanities by providing open access to scholarly work.
On Tuesday, October 25th at 3-4:30pm in Rockefeller 003, Gordon will give a public presentation on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), and how this openly accessible resource has influenced the practices of sharing research over the past two decades. Gordon’s talk, Open Access and the Social Sciences: Changing rules, roles, & responsibilities, will offer insights into the complex relationships among authors, publishers, academic institutions such as Dartmouth, and open repositories such as SSRN. These roles and relationships are shifting with growing expectations to provide broader, more open access to the scholarly literature. He’ll address what will change and what will remain the same with the acquisition of SSRN by Elsevier. There will be opportunities to engage in a discussion of new directions in the open dissemination of the social science literature after the presentation.
Gregg Gordon speaks around the world and writes regularly about scholarly research. Most recently, he co-authored The Question of Data Integrity in Article-Level Metrics published by PLOS Biology in August 2016. This presentation is coordinated in conjunction with Dartmouth’s Open Access Week 2016.
