First Look on SSRN

 

First Look on SSRN is a place where journals identify and share content of interest prior to publication. First Look is a partnership between SSRN and some of the world’s most influential journals to provide rapid, early, and open access to evolving scholarly research. The early stage research shared can include preprints, accepted papers and papers under consideration.

First Look is a great opportunity for journals and their authors to share groundbreaking research with the world before anyone else. Researchers increasingly want to share their work early and widely, and First Look gives journals the opportunity to help authors do just that. When a journal has a First Look they are providing a seamless service to submitting authors who want to share a preprint version of their papers. With one click during the submission process to the journal, authors choose to post a preprint version of their paper on SSRN where it is curated and disseminated through SSRN's established and expansive research communities.

First Look offers both branded and non-branded services for journals. Branded First Looks have a journal homepage where all preprints associated with the journal will be posted. These preprints will also have the journal’s branding on their abstract pages. Non-branded First Looks allow authors to post their content as standard preprint in the SSRN general corpus. Both types of First Looks offer the same seamless submission process for authors.

Ultrasonics Sonochemistry

Ultrasonics Sonochemistry is a leading international journal devoted to publishing excellent quality research articles primarily on chemical reactions and reactors induced by ultrasonic waves, namely sonochemistry. In addition to focusing on chemical reactions, Ultrasonics Sonochemistry also values contributions related to cavitation (acoustic or hydrodynamic) induced events and processing such as sonoluminescence, and chemical/physical/biological transformation of materials.

In support of Open Science, the open access journal Ultrasonics Sonochemistry is partnering with SSRN to provide Ultrasonics Sonochemistry First Look, a preprint site on which participating research will be showcased while it undergoes the review process. This will allow researchers to have very early access to forthcoming work, as well as supporting researchers in the early distribution of their research. First Look makes papers discoverable earlier in the publication process.

Ultrasonics Sonochemistry First Look is a preview of the papers under review in our open access journal. We offer all authors whose papers will undergo our journal`s review process to post their paper as a preprint on SSRN on their behalf. Authors can choose not to make use of that offer.
