I don't know any other site where there are 70,000 people and a million papers on the site. It's incredible. So, to communicate with them and as a research tool; it's a great avenue to use. SSRN is also one of the first places I would go for the breadth of topics and breadth of authors. It also has a lot of credibility with highly respected authors.
