Society for Scholarly Publishing Turns 40

The Society for Scholarly Publishing celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year. To celebrate, a number of special events are scheduled to take place at the Annual Meeting. You won't want to miss this year's event.

The 40th Anniversary Task Force, has also launched a new microsite for 2018 to celebrate SSP’s 40th anniversary. As part of a year-long celebration, the website will feature photos, documents, and news from SSP’s archives as well as interviewers with long-time members of the SSP community.

The SSPat40 website is updated regularly, so you will want to check back often to browse the historical content we unveil, old photos, past topics of interest to the community. If you have any old pictures or ideas you would like to share on the website, please contact me.
