About The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP):
SSP is a non-profit organization formed to promote and advance communication among all sectors of the scholarly publication community. SSP members come from a wide range of organizations representing all aspects of scholarly publishing — including publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors. They meet at SSP’s annual meetings, educational seminars, and regional events to hear the latest trends from respected colleagues and to discuss common and mutual (and sometimes divergent) goals and viewpoints.
