The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) Annual Meeting offers a lot to take in over a short amount of time. The information density can be overwhelming, so I’m always happy a couple of months later when all of the video of the sessions has been processed and made publicly available. It’s a great chance to revisit sessions and to share them with colleagues who could not attend. You can find it all in the SSP Library, just use the pull-down under “Annual Meeting” and select 2019. There were so many great sessions this past year that I’m struggling to select which ones to embed here, so instead I’ll go with what the SSP has chosen to feature:

First, the opening keynote, “Scholarly Publishing in Africa: Impact Factor vs. Societal Impact”, delivered by Dr. Mariamawit Yeshak, Assistant Professor of Pharmacognosy, Addis Ababa University.

Next, Betsy Beaumon, CEO of Benetech’s Keynote Address, “Why Inclusion Matters to Technology and Why Technology Matters to Incusion”.

And finally, a bit of homerism here, The Scholarly Kitchen’s closing plenary at the end of the meeting:
