Walking the Rocky Road from Policy to Compliance: A Live Adventure

Whether you are an author, a journal editorial office, a publisher, or a funder, ensuring compliance with an ever-changing set of policies and guidelines can seem like an impossible quest. This session presents an actual quest: join our intrepid adventurers/panelists as they travel from Policy City to the elusive and potentially mythical Castle of Researcher Compliance. Can they defeat the three-headed troll of conflicting instructions? Will the wizard of Machine Learning help them or hinder them? And if they do reach Compliance, will there be any treasure to cover their costs? The adventurers boast expertise in arcane areas such as Open Access policies, funder mandates, and data sharing policies. Join us in determining how our adventurers will conquer (or succumb to) these challenges. On the side, we'll have a serious discussion of how stakeholders can cross the implementation gap between the good intentions of a policy and the goal of consistent and monitored compliance.

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.
