Connect with SSP and Current Issues in Scholarly Publishing

For many SSP members, the annual webinar series provides intriguing discussions and opportunities to think more broadly about our roles in scholarly publishing.

“For me, the webinars were my first way to really connect with SSP and I am sure other members feel the same way.”

–SSP member, Ande Nichols

The 2022 Webinar Series kicks off on February 24 with “A Beginner’s Guide to Flipping to OA.” This webinar presents practical advice and solutions for anyone considering transforming their publishing program from subscription or hybrid to full Open Access. Panelists from a commercial publisher, a university press, and a society publisher will discuss the opportunities and challenges that are common to all of them, and those unique to each. They will also present key points an organization needs to address in planning and achieving a successful transition. You can still register!

Jason Pointe of the International Anesthesia Research Society is organizing the 2022 series and shares:

“The 2022 Webinar Series is focused on providing insights on issues of both practical and strategic importance, common to a broad audience. We will delve into how to flip an existing journal to OA, trends in peer review that are likely to impact all of us, building and maintaining a journal brand strategy, and how to address some tricky ethical challenges. We will also look into our crystal ball to ask experts for predictions on future trends for which we need to prepare. And, of course, there will be opportunities for The Scholarly Kitchen chefs to weigh in on affairs of the moment!”

Identity Crisis: Building and Maintaining a Journal Brand Strategy
