What is SSRN's ISSN Number?



An International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is a unique eight-digit number user to identify a perdiodical publication at a specific media type.

SSRN has one ISSN (1556-5068) to cover all abstracts. This means we are registered as a serial publication. Individuals papers or eJournals on SSRN do not have different ISSNs or ISBNs. 

The ISSN itself has no significance other than the unique identification of a serial. It does not indicate that the paper has been accepted or published by SSRN since SSRN is not a publisher or a peer-reviewed journal. For more information about this, click here.
