The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is gearing up for their New Directions in Open Access Business Models: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly seminar on October 2-3, 2019 in Washington D.C.

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 PlanS and OA2020 to new peer review models and preprint servers, spam journals, and mega journals.

This will be the third seminar and third year in the series, which will explore new business models, new technologies, and new approaches in academic publishing. For the first time, the seminar is sold out. But fear not — virtual registration is available!

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