Research papers by Kara Smith of Karasma Media PR, make The Social Science Research Network’s 2010 Top Ten Download List*
I received word today that three graduate research I published on The Social Science Research Network (SSRN ), made their 2010 Top Ten Lists.
*UPDATE: I received an e-mail from Gregg Gordon, the President of SSRN early the morning of January 4th, containing the following text:
We apologize for sending you one or more incorrect email messages last week. While testing some new functionality, our servers sent “Top Ten” emails to the top one hundred downloaded papers in certain ejournals instead of the top ten.
Oh well… I made the top-20 in two categories, and the top 50 in others…
- Listed on SSRN’s Top Ten download list for AFAM Subject Matter eJournals, Film eJournal – Forthcoming, HRN African-American Studies Research Network, HRN Performing, Visual, & Fine Arts Research Network, Literary Theory & Criticism eJournal and PVFA Subject Matter eJournals. Downloaded 126 times
- Listed on SSRN’s Top Ten Download List for Music eJournal – Forthcoming. Downloaded 64 times

Being in SSRN’s top-10, three times is very exciting news, as I build this new leg of my career, and it is exhilarating to receive affirmation that my work is being read.
However, in today’s world of on-line research availability, I can’t help wondering how many people are plagiarizing, and how many professors aren’t catching the students doing so — for a multitude of reasons.
I would very much like to hear other published professionals and educators about this issue and safe guards/software you utilize to offset it.
I’ll be keeping a leg of Karasma Media here in New York to continue to service clients here, and traveling as needed. We’re launching a new platform in February, so stay tuned!
Kara works small to mid-size business and legal marketers to create a more clearly defined focus and distinctive business strategy that will provide them with a competitive advantage for new business, higher reputation recognition, and enhance their ability to attract, win, and retain the clients they really want.
