The Social and Environmental Impact Network of SSRN (Social Science Research Network)



The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education is proud to have partnered with Social Science Research Network (SSRN) from 2007-2009. SSRN is an organization that is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. The Social & Environmental Impact Network (SEIN) was founded and sponsored by the Aspen Institute Center for Business Education.


A great resource on a range of topics, the network is now named the Corporate Governance Network. The network is dedicated to housing working papers that touch on how business copes with various social and environmental issues. Every network on SSRN utilizes a series of subject matter e-journals to disseminate the most recent faculty submissions to their Network. For example, the subject matter e-journals for SEIN are: Environmental Impacts of Business, Ethical Business Practices, and Social Impacts of Business. These journals are freely available to faculty if your school is a Subscribing Organization.


You can view the Corporate Governance Network journals by clicking here. The Social & Environmental Impact Network archives from 2007-09 can be found at the bottom of that list.


Individual faculty can search SEIN and download any the +400,000 white papers currently available. However, in order to receive the subject matter e-journals or upload your own papers, you must register and login.

The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education is part of the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program.
