Some interesting posts on the two services over on PrawfsBlawg, with input from Bernie Black (SSRN) and Jean-Gabriel Bankier (bepress).
The big issue on the table: why do papers posted on bepress seem to get more downloads, when SSRN appears to be the market leader? I have wondered this, too. My latest venture capital paper has different versions posted on SSRN and bepress, and the bepress version is downloaded at a much higher rate. Check out PrawfsBlawg for possible explanations.
