2019 Seminar: New Directions in Scholarly Publishing Models

October 2-3, 2019 | 20 F Conference Center | Washington, DC

Through keynote speaker presentations, panel sessions, and roundtables, SSP will explore new ways in which publishers and influential publishing industry leaders are considering and creating new business models, new technologies, and new approaches in publishing to address today’s challenges. 

The key focus of the seminar will be to highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly of current and newly emerging initiatives in the academic publishing world. Along with highlighting successful new models, the seminar will allow for lively discussion and debate surrounding some of the most talked-about enterprises in the field from Plan S and OA2020, to new peer-review models and preprint servers, to spam journals, mega journals, and the future of publishing. The seminar will highlight and emphasize the “good” of some of these new models, while simultaneously providing constructive deliberation on some of the “ugly” proposals from the perspective of a variety of stakeholders, including academics, librarians, researchers, and open access advocates.
