International Experiences in Managing High Impact Journals

We as publishers are facing a crucial turning point with the ever-changing demands of the publishing industry and the economic and financial challenges faced by our publishing organizations. It is more important than ever that we look to management tactics and strategies that allow us to focus on our journal programs long-term. This half-day event brings together experienced industry professionals working in the global arena to share their experiences managing high impact journals in terms of editorial process, outreach, and operations.

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is pleased to offer our first event designed specifically for the scholarly communications and publishing communities in Brazil. If you are the executive editor, manager, or administration for your journal or journals collection, don’t miss this opportunity to engage with our expert panel.

Through both live and virtual presentations, we will look at what’s happening here in Brazil, take a look behind-the-scenes at Nature Communications, review ways that we as publishers can better explain our value to our readers and authors, and learn how XML can be important at all stages of publishing (authoring, before editing, before composition, and post-publication). All sessions will include a question and answer (Q&A) period, and there will be time for networking with speakers and attendees.
