I spent some time paring my bloated subscription list on SSRN today after receiving way too many emails that I simply deleted. SSRN is a great service, but I am tired of the email delivery system. Scrolling through email after email -- many with overlapping content -- is too cumbersome. SSRN provides RSS feeds for individual author pages, but other subscriptions are not available via RSS. I wrote to SSRN and mentioned this, and I was told
Unfortunately, at this time, we only provide RSS feeds for author pages. We do plan to add RSS journal subscription feed functionality in future development.

I completely agree that SSRN provides "way too many emails ... with overlapping content."
I think SSRN should consider paring back the number of email categories (what SSRN calls its "journals"); rather than 10 emails with 4 articles each, I'd much rather get 4 emails with 10 each.
