2022 SSP Webinar: The Future of Scholarly Publishing


OnDemand Webinar | The Future of Scholarly Publishing: Three Trends to Be Ready For


What will the future of scholarly publishing look like? In this webinar industry leaders will tell us what they see as the top three changes that we all need to be ready for. Will it be advances in artificial intelligence products that change how knowledge creators and curators do what they do?  Will it be changes in research funding approaches that affect what research is done and how it is shared? Will it be uncertainty about revenue requiring publishers to change their business models? Or will it be something else? Join us for a peek at the future and ideas on how you can get ready.


Shirley Decker-Lucke, Content Director, SSRN, Elsevier
Shirley Decker-Lucke is the Content Director at SSRN, where she is responsible for ensuring the platform supports content and researcher needs for the dissemination of early stage research (preprints).  Throughout her career she has focused on merging content and technology in innovative ways that serves the research and those who rely upon it. One such example is the creation of a Coronavirus Research Hub to quickly share preprints in support of global efforts to fight the pandemic.  Before this role she was Publishing Director at Elsevier.





Ann Gabriel, SVP Global Strategic Networks, Elsevier
Ann Gabriel leads Elsevier’s Global Strategic Networks team, which engages with key stakeholders across the research enterprise to establish strategic collaborations and use data analytics to address societal challenges in the areas of sustainability, diversity & inclusion and open science. Prior to her current role, she held a variety of positions at the forefront of scholarly communication – most recently as Elsevier’s Publishing Director for journals in Computer Science and Engineering, as well as electronic product development for Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform.







Elizabeth Scarpelli, Director, University of Cincinnati Press & CLIPS

Elizabeth Scarpelli has been part of the higher education and scholarly publishing industry for the last 35 years. She is currently founding director and acquiring editor of the University of Cincinnati Press and Cincinnati Library Publishing Services and sits on the board of Library Publisher Coalition and Midwest Independent Publishers Association. In her current role, Liz has expanded her publishing experience by adding journals, open access, and open educational resources to the types of content she publishes. She believes that open access non-fiction works can mirror real-time scholarly dialog with the right platform and by writing the narrative with open access in mind from the start. Open access improves the written narrative, reader understanding, and discoverability of information while shrinking the distance between authors and their audiences.  





Patrick Shafe, Commercial Director, Deanta
As Deanta Commercial Director, Patrick’s role is centred on understanding how the Academic Publishing market is evolving in a world of continual technological innovation. This research led directly to the Trends in Academic Publishing survey and white paper, which Patrick has written, overseen, and presented to an international audience over the past two years. This research, and the roundtables that Deanta host on the back of them, feed directly into Deanta’s go-to-market strategy and product development. Patrick has a wealth of experience working with global clients across the technology and service sectors.
