New Directions for SSRN

I see that registered users of SSRN can now post comments on other people’s papers. Maybe this feature has been around for some time but I just noticed it. Is this a small step toward open-source peer review? Or a move toward social networking? (What’s next, the SSRN status update or Super Poke?)

    Let’s hope it is a next step towards open-source peer reviewing. I never really understood the point of double-blindness – wouldn’t the market forces work better if the whole process was open?

    As for a next step, how about collecting SSRN credits for your uploaded papers and comments (perhaps based on other people’s ratings)? The credits could then be used to purchase submission rights to journals, elevate your own stuff on SSRN and other academic database search engines (for example, to show your articles in bold/italics to make them stand out and thereby attract more readers/potential citers), and by placement on official “recommended key note speakers lists.”

    There’s an ocean of opportunity, all we need is an entrepreneur to start ladling. ;-)

    I’d go for Super Poke. IWouldn’t you be happy with tasing some of those people?

    […] next? – SSRN status updates or Super Poke – we don’t know but we are having fun. […]
