Ryan Whalen (University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law), SSRN e-Journals and Downloads:
I did a bit of SSRN/LSN hacking, and determined that ... there are some pretty major differences in the average number of downloads different LSN journals get. The below relies on data from just under a quarter million papers that are classified to LSN e-journals, and only extends to LSN classifications (i.e. working paper series or other SSRN e-journal classifications are not included).
The Tax Law & Policy Journals rank 54th out 94 SSRN e-journals, with 185 downloads per paper:
Legal Education is 27 (231 downloads per paper), Legal Educator is 28 (227 downloads per paper), and Wills, Trusts & Estates is 40 (204 downloads per papers. The lowest ranked journal is Agriculatural Law & Policy at 94 (53 downloads per paper).
