SSRN: How to select multiple e-journals


During the deposit process on SSRN and in addition to selecting the collection HEC Paris Research Paper Series, you can select one or more (up to 12) other e-Journals to increase your visibility. This approach puts your work in front of as many thematic pages on SSRN as possible, and sometimes on newsletters sent to subscribers (as is the case for the HEC Paris e-Journal collection).

How to select them?

Simply select the topics that interest you from the list provided under the e-Journal Classification field of the registration form. SSRN offers additional information for each e-Journal, that you can view by mousing over the selection.

Below is an example of a selection in Corporate Finance e-Journals

SSRN: How to become visible in the HEC Paris Research Paper Series

To be ‘visible’ on the HEC Paris page of on SSRN is to gain visibility on SSRN, and also on search engines such as Google and Google Scholar. To do this, you need to select the collection on your deposit form when you submit a paper to SSRN.

Specifically, you must select the HEC Paris collection in the field labeled ‘e-journal classification’, which offers two ways to access HEC Paris:

– In the SEARCH box, type ‘HEC Paris’ and select your department.


– Below, in the SEARCH field, tick ‘Management Research Network’ and then ‘MRN Business School Research Papers’ then ‘HEC’… then select your department.

Below are screenshots showing the two ways to find the collection:
