The Social Science Research Networks eLibrary consists of two parts: an Abstract Database containing abstracts on over 399,600 scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers and an Electronic Paper Collection currently containing over 328,300 downloadable full text documents in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. The Networks encourage readers to communicate directly with authors and other subscribers concerning their own and others' research. To facilitate this we publish detailed author contact information including email addresses for authors of each paper.
