SSP Pre-Conference at APE 2019: Bringing Value in Academic Publishing: Practical Solutions for Thriving in a Changing Environment

In conjunction with APE 2019 | Academic Publishing in Europe
Platforms or Pipelines? Where is the Value in Scholarly Communications?

14 January 2019

Venue of the SSP 2019 Pre-Conference:
Hotel NH Collection Berlin Mitte at Checkpoint Charlie
Leipziger Strasse 106 -111
10117 BERLIN, Germany

The Society for Scholarly Publishing is delighted to be collaborating again with the Academic Publishing in Europe conference on a Pre-Conference day that will explore the theme of Bringing Value in Academic Publishing: Practical Solutions for Thriving in a Changing Environment. Building on the question “Where is the value in academic publishing?,” the SSP Pre-Conference will focus on the methods and tools that academic publishers need to cultivate to successfully meet the challenges posed by ongoing disruption in the scholarly communications ecosystem. How do we keep innovating? How do we ensure our innovative solutions meet the needs of stakeholders in the academic publishing space? We will explore the needs of the main/traditional actors, and those of less-recognized stakeholders whose perspectives are now rightly receiving more attention. The program for the SSP Pre-Conference is being prepared by the SSP Education Committee and will be announced very soon.

Please join us!
