The Society for Scholarly Publishing heads back to the west coast for its 41st Annual Meeting. Looking out into the vast Pacific in San Diego will be a good opportunity to reflect on the (literal) wide world of publishing. Scholarly publishing is flourishing in new and exciting ways across the world, including Asia, India, and the Global South.
As we move together into new eras of sharing research, it is important to make efforts to shrink the distance among stakeholders in publishing, enabling coordinated discussion and problem solving. This year’s meeting will represent a focused effort on inviting new voices into our ongoing conversations—not just geographically but with any new perspectives that help us move together toward a new age of scholarly communication.
What new technologies will be at work in the new status quo we are building? How will publishers continue to meet the needs of authors and readers, especially in previously underrepresented markets? How do these big picture changes affect day-to-day operations in editorial and production offices? Are the solutions and challenges the same for smaller publishers and societies?
We can also take the opportunity to explore solutions for potentially seismic developments like Plan S or other policies from funders and even nations. Join the vibrant community of librarians, academics, publishers, service providers, technologists, and others with a stake in how research is shared as we tackle tomorrow’s challenges and broaden our horizons.
The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), founded in 1978, is a nonprofit organization formed to promote and advance communication among all sectors of the scholarly publication community through networking, information dissemination, and facilitation of new developments in the field.
SSP members represent all aspects of scholarly publishing — including publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors. SSP members come from a wide range of large and small commercial and nonprofit organizations.
They meet at SSP’s annual meetings, educational seminars, and regional events to hear the latest trends from respected colleagues and to discuss common and mutual (and sometimes divergent) goals and viewpoints.
To advance scholarly publishing and communication, and the professional development of its members, through education, collaboration, and networking.
SSP will be recognized by members and the global publishing community as the first place to turn for information and dialogue on current and emerging issues in scholarly communication.
