SSRN Tax Professor Rankings

SSRN Logo (2018)SSRN has up to date its month-to-month rating of 750 American and worldwide regulation faculty colleges and 3,000 regulation professors by (amongst different issues) the variety of paper downloads from the SSRN database.  Right here is the brand new checklist (by way of August 1, 2022) of the Prime 25 U.S. Tax Professors in two of the SSRN classes: all-time downloads and latest downloads (throughout the previous 12 months):

Be aware that this rating contains full-time tax professors with at the least one tax paper on SSRN, and all papers (together with non-tax papers) by these tax professors are included within the SSRN knowledge.

The different SSRN rating classes are: 

These rankings, in fact, are imperfect measures of school scholarly efficiency — as are the present rating methodologies of fame surveys, productiveness counts, and quotation counts. Our modest declare in our article, Rating Regulation Faculties: Utilizing SSRN to Measure Scholarly Efficiency, 81 Ind. L.J. 83 (2006) (Symposium on The Subsequent Technology of Regulation Faculty Rankings), is that the SSRN knowledge can play a task in school rankings together with these different measures.  Invoice Henderson (Indiana-Bloomington) thinks we’re too modest, and that SSRN might present a greater measure of school efficiency than these different methodologies.

For my different articles on what SSRN downloads can inform us in regards to the present state and way forward for authorized scholarship, and in regards to the relationship between scholarship and running a blog, see:

For Ted Seto’s faculty-wide (and metropolitan area-wide) evaluation of those SSRN tax rankings, see:
