Work in Progress: Humanities Network

Posted by Bill Benzon on 10/25/07 at 03:57 PM

From the Chronicle of Higher Ed (open to all):

It’s about to get a lot easier for philosophers, classicists, and literary scholars to share work in progress. The Social Science Research Network, an online clearinghouse for current research popular among social scientists, has created a Humanities Research Network along the same model.

To begin with, the new network will cover three areas: philosophy, classics, and English and American literature, broken down into detailed subcategories. More disciplines will be added in the coming months.

The Humanities Research Network is already up and running online, according to an announcement on the social-science network’s Web site. Authors can upload abstracts or PDF files of working papers, or share published papers as long as they hold the copyright. There is no charge to upload a paper or, in most cases, to download one that is posted. Each author’s contact information appears along with the article so that readers can offer comments.

Here’s the word directly from the Social Science Research Network:

SSRN Announces New Humanities Research Network (HRN)

The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is pleased to announce the
creation of the Humanities Research Network (HRN). HRN will provide a
world-wide, online community for research in all areas of Humanities,
following the model of the other subject matter networks within SSRN
(http://www.ssrn.com).

We expect HRN to become a comprehensive online resource for research
in humanities, providing scholars with access to current work in
their field and facilitating research and scholarship. Initially,
HRN will begin with the following networks:

HRN CLASSIC RESEARCH NETWORK
Director: Lesley Dean-Jones, University of Texas at Austin

HRN ENGLISH & AMERICAN LITERATURE RESEARCH NETWORK
Director: Susan Heinzelman, University of Texas at Austin

HRN PHILOSOPHY RESEARCH NETWORK
Directors: Lawrence Becker, Hollins University and Brie Gertler,
University of Virginia

The abstracting eJournals for each of these networks are listed
below. You can view the expandable Humanities Research Network
taxonomy at http://SSRN.com/browse.

SSRN eLibrary
All abstracts and papers, together with bibliographic data and author
contact information, will be included in the searchable SSRN
electronic library at http://papers.ssrn.com.

The SSRN eLibrary contains more than 164,000 papers by 82,000
authors, including 131,000 full text papers. The eLibrary can be
accessed at http:// papers.ssrn.com. Downloads from the SSRN eLibrary
are running at an annual rate of about 4 million, with over 16
million downloads since SSRN was founded in 1994.

SUBMITTING PAPERS to SSRN
Authors are invited to submit papers to the eLibrary without charge
through SSRN User Headquarters at http://hq.ssrn.com. You will have
registered in SSRN HQ when you have subscribed.

SSRN’s PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY
Searching on an individual’s name in the author field on our SSRN
eLibrary search page at http://papers.ssrn.com provides the best
single professional directory of scholars in accounting, economics,
finance, law, management and, now, political science. Complete
contact information for authors including email, postal, telephone

SSRN DOWNLOAD POLICY
SSRN provides worldwide free access to all papers included in all of
our Institutional Research Paper Series, and all other papers
uploaded to the eLibrary directly by an author.

SSRN’S MISSION
SSRN’s objective is to provide rapid, worldwide distribution of
research to authors and their readers and to facilitate communication
among them at the lowest possible cost. In pursuit of this objective,
we allow authors to upload papers without charge. And any paper an
author uploads to SSRN is downloadable for free, worldwide.

SSRN reinvests all of the net cash it receives (principally from
subscriptions to our abstracting journals and from institutions that
use us to distribute their research papers), after expenses and
servicing debt, to enhance our services to authors and users. SSRN’s
shareholders have not received any return on their investment,
including dividends. To minimize potential conflicts with authors and
users, SSRN has no outside investors.
