I have a couple working papers on ssrn.com that I am preparing for submission to a journal. If it is accepted, should I pull the ssrn.com copy from the website or block people's access to it by making it private? Is there either a duty from the copyright change to remove it or if there is no legal obligation is there an ethical one?
Their FAQs section states:
10. Does submission to SSRN restrict in any way what I can do with my paper? No. And if at any time you wish to immediately remove a paper from SSRN, you may do it yourself through SSRN HQ, or contact us to remove it for you.
Contacting them is always an option to make sure though.
