WRDS RPS and Innovation Award

Together, WRDS and SSRN elevate the visibility of research across an array of financial fields.

Gain the recognition needed in today’s competitive academic landscape.
The best financial research is changing policy and practice at firm, regulatory and national levels, and demonstrating the value of the institutions and researchers who conduct it.

Make sure your academic program is making its mark with impact-driven research, supported by WRDS.

This RPS will elevate a researchers’ visibility, increase their Eigenfactor® score, and build a specialized research base for others to explore easily, thereby rapidly advancing the sharing of knowledge.
