New SSRN eJournal for Law Librarians
Reprinted with permission:
We are delighted to present the Legal Information & Technology eJournal to the law library community. The archive already includes over 150 papers and is growing daily. Subscribers will soon start receiving email issues announcing works in progress and recent publications. SSRN will issue a formal announcement soon, but we are pleased to provide a pre-launch viewing.
(If you do not already have an SSRN account, you may subscribe to the ejournal through your law school's Legal Scholarship Network Site License: http://www.ssrn.com/SiteLic_orgSubscribers.cfm?netid=201)
We thank the journal's founding sponsor MALLCO, the Mid-America Law Consortium for their generous support. Without MALLCO's backing, this would not have gotten off the ground so quickly. We also thank the advisory board for their encouragement and thoughtful ideas about direction and focus. And we thank Janet Sinder from LLJ, Mike Chiorazzi from LRSQ, Mark Engsberg from IJLI, and Mary Hotchkiss from Perspectives for their efforts to maximize availability of their journals' content on the new eJournal. One of our goals for the eJournal is to generate more articles for the professional literature.
We are excited about the journal on several fronts. We aim to make it the premier eJournal in the field by featuring the works of law librarians and other academics. Obtaining feedback on works in progress, developing the profession
We are in the process of inviting LLJ, LRSQ, IJLI, and Perspectives authors to post their works back to 2005 and welcome all other publications from that time frame fitting within the journal's subject matter. If you already have an SSRN account please upload your paper and classify it under the Legal Scholarship Network > LSN Subject Matter eJournals > Legal Information & Technology eJournal.
If you do not have an SSRN account it is very easy to set one up and upload your paper for free at: http://www.ssrn.com
We have also attempted to identify papers previously posted to SSRN for inclusion. In the short time frame we have been working, we will surely have missed some. If your paper is already on SSRN and we have not contacted you, please let us know and we can have it reclassified under the Legal Information & Technology eJournal.
We hope you enjoy the eJournal and welcome your feedback and suggestions.
