SSP 40th Annual MeetingMay 30 – June 1, 2018 | SHERATON GRAND CHICAGO | CHICAGO, IL USA
Scholarly Publishing at the Crossroads: What's working, what's holding us back, where do we go from here?
As the Society for Scholarly Publishing celebrates its 40th anniversary, we highlight the many crossroads within scholarly publishing, from changing editorial practices, new funding and revenue models, technological innovations, and the balance between past and future. These crossroads introduce new challenges as well as new opportunities for scholarly publishing and for the communities we serve. As we look back, could we have predicted forty years ago where scholarly publishing would be today? How can we anticipate needs for the future? What questions do we need to be asking-and answering-to move forward?
As publishers, librarians, vendors, and academics, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities that face us as an industry and how we can best continue to serve our mission of publishing and distributing quality scholarship.
