COVID-19 Changes in Scholarly Communication: What Pandemic Changes Will Result in Permanent Changes?

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on every segment of the scholarly research continuum; it has affected the way journals approach their review processes, has increased the number of researchers using preprints, and has had consequences on researcher productivity in terms of paper publications and reviews performed. COVID-19 researchers have had to sift through huge paper volumes, and indexers are looking towards different curation and sharing approaches for COVID-19 research. Each panelist will represent key perspectives as we ask (1) how have the pressures of the pandemic led to changes in how you do what you do, and (2) what aspects of these changes are likely to continue post-pandemic? Do you think these are good changes or bad changes? Learning Level: Mixed-Learning

43rd Annual Meeting (2021)

"Charting a New Course: From Chaos to Innovation" 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.
