The Professional & Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) are offering two unique learning opportunities in January.

The PSP Books Committee will be hearing from guest speakers Matt Cooper & Emma Brink (Wiley) to speak about early publishing careers on Friday, January 13, 2017 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. (EST) at the AAP/NY offices or via webinar.

Did you know that the three factors early career professionals in scholarly communication value the most are job stability, a healthy work environment, and upward mobility? You are invited to hear the results of an industry-wide survey to early career professionals in the scholarly communication field. The session will feature commentary and analysis of the survey results, as well as thoughts and advice on early career professionals, management, and mentorship.

The PSP Journals Committee will be hearing from guest speaker Mikael Lemberg, Director of Product Innovation & Partnerships at on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. (EST) at the AAP/NY offices or via webinar.

Mikael will discuss how companies can leverage social media listening to gather customer insights that will increase the ROI of digital marketing budgets. During this session, you will learn how this is accomplished through data science, machine learning and a strong vision to build products that democratize data.

The guest speaker talks are free of charge but you will need to sign up as space is limited. Contact Sara Pinto and let her know whether you would like to attend in person or remotely.
