The study of economics looks at the impact of consumption, savings, investment and production on economic growth. The Economics Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in economics in our digital library, speeding up dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers, early stage research and even peer reviewed or published journal articles. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters, among others. SSRN also helps economics scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest while providing a platform for the early sharing of their work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Economics plays an important role in many other disciplines, such as political science, public policy, demographics, finance, banking, law, management, agriculture & environmental studies, and anthropology. SSRN helps researchers in the field of economics discover cutting edge research in their own and other related fields while also facilitating knowledge sharing and connections between researchers from within and outside their field.
