December 16, 2019 – Mt. Laurel, NJ – The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) hosted our third annual New Directions seminar on October 2 and 3 at the 20F Conference Center in Washington DC earlier this year. With a record number of in-person as well as virtual attendees, the theme Scholarly Publishing Models “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” proved to be popular across a range of participants. Topics included some of the most talked-about enterprises in the field, from Plan S and OA2020 to new peer review models and preprint servers, spam journals, and mega journals.
If you weren’t able to attend, don’t worry – the entire seminar is now available for streaming in the SSP Library! The SSP Library is open to the public, so feel free to share your favorite session with your colleagues, customers, and anyone interested in scholarly communication.
