Regional Events

SSP goes on the road with events in many cities such as Boston, Washington D.C. Raleigh/Durham, Chicago and more, offering networking opportunities and topical discussions with scholarly publishing colleagues in your area. These informal, low-cost events give scholarly publishing professionals an occasion to connect with other SSP members in their local area. Ideal for early career professionals as well as those looking to expand their network. If you are interested in helping to organize an event in your area, please contact info@sspnet.org.
