Our debut series on the SSP OnDemand Library, the 2020 Professional Development Series offers presentations on current trends and issues in scholarly communications—from the impact of COVID-19 to diversity, equity, and inclusion in publishing--available at your convenience. New video presentations will be released each week; free materials and paid sessions can be accessed individually or as part of a group; all recordings may be accessed asynchronously, but registrants can also interact with presenters and fellow audience members during live screenings! Videos will be offered on the following topics: Business Models and Strategies, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, Editorial Innovations, Ethics and Standards, Global Trends, Research Perspectives. Featuring panels of leaders in their respective fields, this series is a must for anyone wishing to keep abreast of the latest developments in the industry.
This training course will provide attendees with a complete overview of the academic journals ecosystem, giving them the “quick start” they need to navigate this evolving landscape. The course is composed of several “modules” touching on all major facets of journals publishing—financial skills and business models; marketing, editorial and production; data and decision making; and the tools and technology of journals publishing—each led by experts in their respective fields. The course has been designed especially for earlier- to mid-career professionals currently working in journals and hoping to gain a more rounded perspective on the journals publishing environment. It will also be useful to vendors, librarians, and book publishers who wish to enhance their understanding of journals publishing.
Our third annual New Directions seminar took place from October 2 to 3, 2019, at the 20F Conference Center in Washington DC. With a record number of in-person as well as virtual attendees, the theme Scholarly Publishing Models “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” proved to be popular across a range of participants. The entire seminar is now available for streaming, so share your favorite session with your colleagues, customers, and anyone interested in scholarly communication.
