Statistics released publicly by the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) indicate that, as was the case for each of the six preceding years, Professor Lucian Bebchuk led SSRN citation rankings at the end of 2013. As of the end of December 2013, Bebchuk ranked first among all law school professors in all fields both in terms of the total number of citations to his work and in terms of the total number of downloads of his work on SSRN.

Bebchuk’s papers (available on his SSRN page here) have attracted a total of more than 4,000 citations. His top ten papers in terms of citations are as follows:

SSRN is the leading electronic service for social science research, and its electronic library contains (as of December 2013) over 426,000 full-text documents by more than 242,000 authors. SSRN’s rankings in terms of citations are available here and SSRN’s rankings in terms of downloads are available here.

  1. Hearty congratulations to Lucian for his continuing work on such important topics like shareholder primacy and executive compensation. These citation and downloads statistics are just a confirmation (if one was required at all) of his towering contribution in this area.
