Transformation, Trust, and Transparency; SSP 45th Annual Meeting, May 31 - June 2, 2023, Portland, Oregon

Transformation, Trust and Transparency

May 31–June 2, 2023 | Oregon Convention Center & Hyatt Regency Portland | Portland, OR USA

The pace of change in our industry continues unabated, with seismic shifts in areas such as the dissemination of research, business models, and the nature of the workplace.  And yet, while pressure for change has become the new normal, fundamental change has proved more elusive. We invite you to join us in highlighting the Trust and Transparency issues that underlie many of the challenges we face and exploring what it takes to create more meaningful Transformation in scholarly publishing.

Our aim is to present an in-person meeting in Portland with a virtual attendance option that includes a mix of live and on-demand content.  That said, the health and safety of our attendees is a prime concern, and we will monitor and be ready to modify plans as needed. Registration will open in February. 

As always, the SSP community continues to focus on bringing together academics, funders, librarians, publishers, service providers, technologists, and countless others with a communal interest and stake in disseminating  scholarly information. We look to the 45th Annual Meeting as an opportunity to continue this tradition and welcome all colleagues and community stakeholders, old and new.

All individual members and staff of organizational members will receive the member discount to attend the Annual Meeting.
