Pre-Publication Publications: SSRN And Self-Plagiarism

Gregory S. Crespi (SMU; Google Scholar), Pre-Publication Publications:

SSRN Logo (2018)Many regulation professors now submit basically full drafts of their articles on SSRN and/or on university-sponsored working paper web sites previous to submitting these articles for journal publication. This “pre-publication publication,” so to talk, is helpful for each authors and their readers, but it surely raises some self-plagiarism points, and there doesn’t but seem like a broad consensus on how these points needs to be addressed. 

I argue that this more and more widespread observe of SSRN and dealing paper pre-publication of articles needs to be acknowledged as fully acceptable, and that in gentle of this observe regulation journals ought to relatively considerably change the best way that they function, shifting to an entirely on-line format and offering solely article abstracts and web site hyperlinks for the articles that they “settle for,” relatively than modifying and offering the total textual content of the articles.
