“iSSRN, a free iPhone App, is now available. It provides instant access to the latest Social Science and Humanities research in the SSRN eLibrary from scholars around the world.

iSSRN is available from Apple’s iTunes store. iSSRN allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to search over 250,000 papers and read the full text of the papers directly on their device

Note: This is an updated version of the previous iSSRN App and this version, not the previous one, will be updated in the future.

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. We have received several excellence awards for our web site.

Each of SSRN’s networks encourages the early distribution of research results by publishing Submitted abstracts and by soliciting abstracts of top quality research papers around the world. We now have hundreds of journals, publishers, and institutions in Partners in Publishing that provide working papers for distribution through SSRN’s eLibrary and abstracts for publication in SSRN’s electronic journals.

The SSRN eLibrary consists of two parts: an Abstract Database containing abstracts on over 260,300 scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers and an Electronic Paper Collection currently containing over 213,700 downloadable full text documents in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. The eLibrary also includes the research papers of a number of Fee Based Partner Publications.”
