SSP On-Demand: Webinars

Climate Change and Publishing—How Publishers Can Make an Impact

In anticipation of COP 2023, this panel will share pertinent information that scholarly publishers need to know about climate change from two key points of view: What challenges will climate change pose for the industry, and what can scholarly publishers, as science disseminators, do to help advance climate change research? Publishers have the credibility and resources to play a key role in expediting the trajectory of climate change research globally by placing this important work front and center for decision makers at both the international and regional levels. They also have the opportunity to lead by example via their own solutions to the problems that climate change may pose directly to the industry. Our speakers will address the varied avenues by which scholarly publishers can engage with their audiences on climate change research.

2023 | October 11


The SSP webinar program delivers a series of highly informative, thought-provoking webinars designed to challenge and stimulate discussion. Covering timely topics and offered regularly throughout the year, our one-hour webinars are available for viewing 180 days after the live broadcast.
