Top-Ten Recent SSRN Downloads

Ssrn logo for manuscripts announced in the last 60 days in the criminal law and procedure journals are here.

CrimProf previously noted that these rankings should be taken with a grain of salt. Here's another grain. Though the ranking only includes manuscripts posted within the last 60 days, when a manuscript is revised, the 60 days starts to run again. But the total download count for a manuscript does not reset. So the list doesn't just compare brand new manuscripts with those posted 60 days ago. Indeed, this week's list includes one manuscript that was originally posted on June 11. Indeed six of the 10 articles listed were first posted more than 60 days ago.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with revising and reposting a manuscript. But to make it easier for readers to compare apples to apples, or at least to know what fruit is being compared with what fruit, the list below now includes the dates when the manuscript was first posted and last updated.
