2021 Annual Meeting Session | Data Privacy, Ethics, and Governance for Usage Analytics: An Emerging Open Access Dialogue

Publishers regularly provide reports that document use of paid content. Libraries use these reports to assess the value of subscriptions. Libraries are increasingly contracting for publishing services and with that has come a desire to assess those investments. Beyond descriptive data on how much is published, what additional data might publishers provide? How might usage data be linked with other data sources to illuminate scholarship engagement and author impact? As publishing and usage data are linked and aggregated, issues emerge related to privacy and ethics, data management, security, and appropriate use. Questions emerge: What personally identifiable data about authors are collected during publication processes? Are data tied with an identifier such as ORCID? Should identifiers be used for analysis across platforms? What data might be collected about readers of open content? As a community, how do we govern who has access to such data, both about individuals and in aggregate? || Speakers: Christina Drummond, Lisa Hinchliffe, Joe Karaganis

43rd Annual Meeting (2021)

Without dwelling on the tumultuous events of the past year, our 43rd Annual Meeting aimed to recognize their impact, igniting—and sometimes forcing—innovation to meet changing demands. We explored the many new paths that materialize if we are willing to embrace the unexpected. What new insights and strategies have been discovered and implemented? What are the possibilities that have yet to be realized? As we move from reacting to adapting, how will our responses change the future of scholarly communications? And how should our responsibility to the larger academic ecosystem during this extraordinary time shape those responses? If you missed the SSP Annual Meeting, you can purchase individual keynote, plenary, and educational sessions on demand in the SSP OnDemand Video Content Library. You can also purchase an All Access Pass to the content on the Pathable platform through November 1.
