Accdon was proud to lead an educational session at the 44th Annual Meeting with the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) titled “Getting Authors and Publishers on the Same Page: A Global Conversation.” Organized and moderated by our Research Communications Strategist, Dr. Avriel Licciardi, this hybrid session connected industry professionals and researchers directly. Panelists provided valuable insight on how the greater publishing community can address the uncertainties and questions that researchers encounter within the scholarly publishing industry. Via an open conversation between the audience and panelists, SSP attendees had the opportunity to hear and share perspectives, in an effort to increase transparency and inclusivity within the global scholarly community.
“It was a pleasure to attend the 44th Annual SSP Meeting in person this year. Our session was a success, and we hope to continue bringing industry professionals and authors together through future outreach initiatives focusing on reducing uncertainty and increasing benefits for all involved in the global scholarly publishing community,” Dr. Licciardi comments.
SSP is an important part of the scholarly publishing ecosystem, and the return to in-person meetings was a welcome development for Accdon and its communications team. Dr. Clark Holdsworth, Senior Manager of Communications & Partnerships reflects on the value that SSP provides: “The SSP Annual Meeting is such a crucial platform for the industry. Our landscape is constantly shifting as publishers respond to author and academic community demands. This year, the pertinent discussion surrounding new content formats—such as conference recordings and webinars—and rapid industry consolidation will be instrumental in guiding us forward into 2023. My team¬ in particular is extremely excited for the evident partnership opportunities available to Accdon with so many new, author-connected platforms becoming available in the industry.”
As Accdon leadership, such as Drs. Licciardi and Holdsworth, continue to contribute to SSP through active committee participation, we look forward to new and exciting collaborations among the scholarly publishing community. With conference season underway, Accdon will be present at upcoming meetings for the American Chemical Society, Society for Neuroscience, and American Geophysical Union.
