Conference Proceedings

SSRN has worked with over 100 conferences and meetings organized by schools and associations around the globe

Put our global, interdisciplinary platform to work to spread the word about your conference and the high-quality papers presented.

Early sharing without restrictions

SSRN does not retain copyright for the papers on our site or restrict how the papers can be used in the future. This makes our eLibrary an ideal outlet for sharing conference papers. More on our FAQ.

Interdisciplinary visibility

Papers are individually evaluated for distribution in up to 12 SSRN subject matter eJournals (in any network) which keep SSRN subscribers up-to-date on the latest research in their field being uploaded to our eLibrary.

One account, many possibilities

Conference organizers and participants have access to all their conference submissions, assignments and other data through one account, meaning fewer passwords to remember. 

Short turn-around

Proceedings can be available online within a month using Proceedings Hosting, or within two days of notifying SSRN you are ready for the papers to be shared publicly when using Proceedings Management.

Free, global access for readers

Proceedings are available at no charge to our 2+ million registered users and the public via our eLibrary. An SSRN account is not required to view or download the papers.

Permanent archive

Pay a one-time fee and the proceedings of this year’s conference will be available permanently on SSRN. Only pay a new fee to upload proceedings from a new year.

SSRN offers two solutions for proceedings:
