Submit a Paper to SSRN


First, is your paper eligible for posting on SSRN? Read this FAQ to find out. 

How to Create a New SSRN Submission

1. Sign in (or create a free account) with SSRN

2. Click "Submit a Paper" on the header of the SSRN homepage.

3. A submission will generate. Click continue in the Orange box to continue to the Submission form. 

4. Click on each field of the Submission Form to expand it and enter the correct information. Many authors choose to copy and paste the required information from their PDF to fill in the submission form more quickly. PLEASE REMEMBER to click "save" when you are done with each field.

Once the submission form is complete, you will see "Complete" and a check mark next to each item on the Status box located on the right side of the page. 


When you are sure that all the information has been input correctly on the submission form, click "Submit to SSRN" in the status box to the right. 

After you click Submit, our system will run through your submission. You may see "loading" icons appear and flash on your screen. A box will pop up asking you to certify that you have permission to post the paper. Check the box if you have permission, then click "Submit." If you do not complete this step, your paper will remain un-submitted!

Your paper is Immediately Available on SSRN unless you choose to make the paper Privately Available (this button is located where you upload your PDF)

If these instructions were not detailed enough to explain your particular submission situation, see more detailed instructions in the video or attachment below.



Feel free to contact us at if you have questions or concerns at any point during the submission process.
