SSP DC Regional Event September 2019

3:00-5:00 pm ET 
No-host cocktail hour immediately following at the Thunder Grill at Union Station

Social Media and Scholarly Publishing

Panel Discussion and Q&A with scholarly publishing leaders and experts in the use of social media

Have you ever:

  • Missed a scholarly publishing meeting, but used the conference hashtag to follow along on social media? 
  • Used social media to keep up with important scholarly publishing developments, such as Plan S and open peer review? 
  • Stayed up-to-date with what’s happening in your society’s community by scrolling through Facebook and Twitter? 
  • Noticed researchers in particular fields of study connecting and even enhancing their work through social media relationships?

If your answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then please join us at our next DC regional event to discuss the impact of social media in scholarly publishing. Whether you’re a social media expert, someone who doesn’t have an “@” to their name, or something in between, you’ll be sure to learn from our esteemed panel of speakers as they explore how social media affects publishing professionals, vendors, societies, researchers, authors, readers, and our communities.
