You can now upload your research data on Mendeley when you submit your paper on SSRN.
SSRN is a research paper repository specializing in social sciences, including economics, law, corporate governance, and humanities. It is a great way to share your work and read the work of other researchers.
Mendeley started as a reference manager and is now also an academic social network and a research data repository through Mendeley Data. SSRN and Mendeley are both edited by Elsevier.
Recently, SSRN added a feature to help researchers like you upload their research data on Mendeley while they post their research paper. Then, the data will be linked to the published paper and be citable so the researcher can receive credit if another researcher uses it.
If you are interested in this new feature, next time you log in, while you post your paper on SSRN, just click on Upload research data and you will be redirected to Mendeley Data.
It is a good opportunity to capitalize on your work. Letting other researchers accessyour data can help them validate your research and increase your own confidence in your work.
SSRN’s new search page centralizes all the search tools on a single place. Quick Search and Advanced Search are combined onto one tab, so that you can switch to Browse SSRN Networks or Browse JEL Codes.
The Browse menu leads you to institutions pages such as HEC Paris, which can be found under the “Management Research Network” and “MRN Business School Research Papers” category.
On the SSRN platform, the library already subscribes to the networks:
– Accounting Research Network

– Financial Economics Network
If the network you would like to subscribe to is not listed above, contact the library who will pay for an individual subscription for you.
Interesting post on SSRN blog dealing with issues such as:
– coauthors who may submit the same papers,
– coauthors who want to share the same version of a paper,
– new version of a paper with a slightly different title…
SSRN receives close to 70,000 new submissions and over 40,000 revisions each year. Authors use SSRN to share their research and often submit different versions of the same paper along its evolutionary path because they may provide different value to different readers.

“Do you believe that at Christmas time the gas prices, the economy and the number of suicides peak? Do you think that the value of presents you are giving to your beloved is of importance? We show in this paper that conventional wisdom about Christmas is often doubtful. Furthermore, we give an idea of how Santa Claus — and maybe you — is able to finance Christmas celebrations, why emergency departments are a place to especially avoid during this time of the year and why Christmas tree growers might care to explain the differences across species to you this year. We cannot clearly establish whether Christmas entails a welfare loss or gain, however, we give you an idea as to which institutional settings might reduce a potential welfare loss. Also, we give advice about which behaviours might get you more Christmas presents from Santa this year. Finally, we find that more research is needed to give conclusive reasons why Santa Claus actually brings presents to (nearly) everyone.”
