A new service offering bound paper copies of material available from the wonderful Social Science Research Network web site is now available.
Even with the eBook and eBook Reader frenzy going on these day, professionally bound versions of printed research reports still seem to be of value to authors and others.
If not bound, all SSRN papers are continue to be available for free as PDF files.
From an Email by Greg Gordon, President of SSRN:
SSRN recently released our Purchase Bound Hard Copy Service. Authors and readers can now order printed copies of select papers in the SSRN eLibrary, which provides another format for users to access research papers. The Free One-Click Download option is not affected by this new service.
For $9.99 plus shipping, the reader will receive a black and white printed and “perfect bound” copy of the PDF document with a glossy color cover. The cover includes the title of the paper, and the authors with their affiliations. A sample cover and additional details about the Purchase Bound Hard Copy service, including details on which papers are eligible, are available on our FAQ.
