 What should I do if I suspect a copyright violation in a paper posted on SSRN?


SSRN respects the intellectual property rights of researchers, scientists, publishers and others and asks that you do too. Accordingly, you may only post versions of academic papers and articles (“Academic Papers”), journal articles, or other content on the Social Science Research Network (“SSRN”) site if you have the right to do so. By way of example, while many journal publishers permit posting of some versions of Academic Papers, most journals restrict the sharing of final versions. To be sure you have the right to upload such content, you should review your publishing agreement, the publisher’s copyright policies, and/or any other applicable information prior to posting any version of an Academic Paper.


Please refer to the Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy page for more information.
