Biology is one of the most active, diverse, and fast-moving research fields in the world today. From planetary-scale analyses of ecosystems to molecular-level studies of genes to bioinformatics, biology has an exceptionally broad scope. The Biology Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in the biological sciences in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scientific community access to groundbreaking working papers, early stage research and even peer reviewed or published articles. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters, among others. SSRN also helps biology and life science scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest while providing a platform for the early sharing of their work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
It can be challenging for researchers to keep up with ongoing developments. SSRN provides a platform for sharing and discovering a wide range of research topics within the biological sciences while also helping authors and researchers uncover connections between biology and other disciplines such as Law, Medicine, and Philosophy.
