Yesterday, I received notification that my paper, "Financial Elder Abuse: A (Dis)Confirmatory Analysis" made the Social Science Research Network's top 10 download lists for:
* AARN: Other Legal Anthropology: Criminal Law; and
* Consumer Financial Fraud eJournal
Top 10 lists are updated on a daily basis. Major analytics tracked for papers on SSRN include downloads, abstract views, and number of works that cite the paper in question.
SSRN is an excellent source both for reading pre-published papers as well as preparation for publication of one's own work. The online service is free of charge; Some conferences utilize it to facilitate dialogue between authors and respondents in the lead-up to academic conferences.
I will present this paper at the Academy of Financial Services annual conference in Minneapolis this October.
