The ‘HEC Paris Research Paper Series’

HEC Paris launched its own SSRN collection in January 2013, called the ‘HEC Paris Research Paper Series.’  Thanks to the support of researchers, professors and collaborators, Hec Paris  has managed to rise from 33rd to 14th place  in terms of the total number of publication downloads in the last 12 months. (data acquired from SSRN rankings)

This year, 101 documents have been deposited in the repository, compared to 52 in 2012; an increase by almost double, placing HEC Paris in 15th place in terms of new documents uploaded.

The complete collection of 568 documents, of which at least one author is affiliated with HEC Paris today represents 161,900 downloads – an average of 285 downloads per document and 26 citations per author .

To enable HEC Paris to maintain or even improve its ranking and to allow authors to improve their visibility, it is important to continue this trend and increase the number of submissions.
