2021 Annual Meeting Session | The Future of STM Journal Publishing in China: Learnings, Challenges, and New Opportunities

The development of a world-class domestic STM journal publishing program has become a national goal of China; to move forward from having a large presence in science and technology, to becoming a world recognized STM powerhouse. China has emphasized its national strategy to build a group of the world's leading STM journals within a clear timeline through the issue of the"Chinese STM Journal Excellence Action Plan (2019-2023)", which includes specific directives to encourage domestic collaboration and expansion. Additionally, in February 2020, the Ministry of Science & Technology issued the notice"Some measures to eliminate the unhealthy orientation o'paper-only' in science and technology evaluation (trial)." At the same time, a new notice on "Regulating the use of related indicators in SCI papers in higher education institutions: opinions on establishing correct evaluation orientation" was jointly issued by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Science & Technology. To help inform the international publishing community, this session will provide first-hand critical insight into these most recent developments that have the potential to reshape the academic publishing industry in China. || Speakers: Donald Samulack, Zhaoping LYU, Christine Hu, Zong-Ming Cheng, PhD, Bing LIU, Tieming Zhang

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.
