Chemistry research community now has a dedicated network on SSRN — ChemRN

(7 August 2017) Hot on the heels of the BioRN release in June, SSRN has just launched a new community-driven network dedicated to chemistry: ChemRN.

“Our network for biology research has been a huge success,” said SSRN Managing Director Gregg Gordon, pointing out that BioRN already has nearly 5,000 papers available from 6,500 authors.

ChemRN is a similar community-driven network for chemical sciences research, including all areas of chemistry and the fields of energy, environmental and materials sciences. Researchers can post preprints and working papers, share ideas and other early-stage research and collaborate. The network allows users to quickly upload and read abstracts and full-text papers free of charge.

There are more than 500 existing interdisciplinary abstracts classified on ChemRN, which is designed to foster collaboration among the physical, life and social sciences.

“Researchers have told us that a key driver within chemistry is the desire to get feedback on early work and research ideas,” Gordon said. “This network will make it easier for users to have the latest chemistry research at their fingertips and easily collaborate.

“By working together with the research community,” he added, “we get valuable insights into how the importance of preprint services is growing and can help meet researchers’ needs. This is at the heart of everything we do.”
