SSRN Success…Sort Of

by on Apr.20, 2010, under general

When the NYT linked to Saving Face (my thesis), I saw thousands and thousands of downloads from my server – I think I calculated at the time that it would’ve made it the 7th most downloaded article ever from SSRN.

A few days ago, I was informed that Losing Face (my revised article) had made the top ten list for (recent) articles in the eBusiness & eCommerce eJournal.

I also found out that Losing Face has been already cited in three peer-reviewed papers, including one in First Monday and two law review articles.

While I’m honored that so many folks have found my writing to be interesting and useful, it is a bit ironic that Losing Face appears to be good enough to be widely read and well-cited but not good enough to merit publication on its own, at least judging by the stream of rejections from law reviews to which I’ve submitted. Guess not having a J.D. is a bigger issue than I’d hoped…
