Additionally, Sheridan will provide the lanyards for the meeting, Atypon will be providing a conference bag, and Digital Science is hosting an animated gif photo booth at the President’s Reception.
The SSP Annual Meeting is the focal point for those engaged in scholarly communication. By bringing professionals together in an open exchange of the newest technical information and ideas, the meeting provides the highest standard in professional communication. Attendees include professionals in the various sectors concerned with scholarly publishing, including: publishers, technology providers, scholars, librarians, database producers, funders, and other stakeholders. The 2019 meeting theme is Shaping the New Status Quo: Global Perspectives in Scholarly Publishing.
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.
“Sponsors are a critical component to the success and the overall experience of the Annual Meeting,” notes SSP Executive Director, Melanie Dolechek. “We cannot thank these generous organization enough for their support.”
