SSP announces highly competitive Fellowship winners for 2022 across publishing, librarianship, and scholarly communications.
December 15, 2021 – The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has announced that twelve students and early-career professionals have been awarded highly competitive Fellowships for 2022. The Career Development Committee selected these outstanding individuals from a robust applicant pool based on their high level of engagement in their fields and a diverse range of skills in scholarly communications.
“In a highly selective applicant field, these 2022 fellows all had insightful perspectives to share about our industry and their role within it. We are eager to share with and learn from these fellows as they embark on their fellowship activities throughout the year,” said Michelle English, Career Development Committee Co-Chair
The 2022 Fellows are:
- John Oluwaseye Adebayo, University of Ibadan, Centre for Economics and Finance Studies, Ibadan, Nigeria
- Saumya Gupta, University of Delhi
- Hannah Harwood, Public Library of Science (PLOS)
- Kevin Jewett, American Society for Radiation Oncology

- Jennie Pajerowski, AAAS/Science

The Fellowship program offers a wide range of career development, training, and networking opportunities, including matching Fellows with an industry expert mentor and working in small groups to create a poster presentation for the 2022 Annual Meeting.
The award also includes complimentary SSP membership, registrations for selected SSP events, and travel reimbursement for those coming from abroad to attend the Annual Meeting to be held in Chicago, IL on June 1-3, 2022.
Fellows are asked to report on their experiences and learning outcomes, join and actively participate in an SSP committee, contribute to a Fellowship project, provide feedback about SSP programs, and work with volunteers to promote and highlight the Fellowship program.
“The Fellowship Program continues to attract high-quality applicants and has become increasingly competitive,” notes SSP Executive Director, Melanie Dolechek. “Situating Annual Meeting attendance as a capstone experience provides the Fellows a full season to get involved, expand their network, and learn additional skills that will enable them to take full advantage of all that our Annual Meeting has to offer.”
The Fellowship Program is made possible by the Generations Fund. Generous donations from members and industry endow the Generations Fund to allow SSP the resources, in perpetuity, to continue this program. The Career Development Committee, on behalf of SSP, sincerely thank the donors who make this innovative and supportive program possible.
