Society for Scholarly Publishing invites scholarly communication professionals to join its Industry Announcements and Events online discussion group
- 05 Jan 2018

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is inviting scholarly communication professionals to join its Industry Announcements and Events online discussion group. The discussion group replaces the SSP-L list-serv and is part of SSP's new C3 community platform. Announcements of conferences, events, or other resources of broad interest to the community are welcome. Press releases with newsworthy information of interest to SSP members should continue to be directed to SSP's editors for potential inclusion in SSP's various news outlets.

The online discussion group is open to the public, but users must register on the C3 platform to post messages. Users can choose to receive real-time notifications of new posts or opt for a daily or weekly email digest.

In addition to supporting the Industry Announcements and Events discussion group, C3 also supports SSP's committees, task forces and other volunteer groups. Each volunteer group has a community workspace for communicating, collaborating and sharing resources. SSP members also have exclusive access to the SSP Member Exchange where they can share ideas, ask questions, and network with their peers.

Those who wish to join the Industry Announcements and Events discussion group may register at www.c3.sspnet.org. If you already have an account on sspnet.org, you can log in with your existing user name and password. Existing SSP-L subscribers have been migrated automatically to the new platform.

New engineering network, EngRN, launches on SSRN platform
- 14 Dec 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced that SSRN, its preprint server and early stage research platform, is launching a dedicated engineering network, EngRN.

EngRN supports early stage research sharing in all areas of engineering, including aerospace, bioengineering, chemical, civil, electrical, energy, industrial, manufacturing, materials and mechanical. Engineers can post preprints and working papers on the new network, share ideas and other early stage research, and collaborate. It allows users to quickly upload and read abstracts and full text papers, free of charge.

EngRN follows the 2017 launches of new SSRN networks in the Life Sciences with Biology and Physical Sciences with Chemistry. These are all part of SSRN's strategy to extend the knowledge and expertise it has in building research driven communities.

A preprint is the author's own write-up of research results and analysis that has not been peer-reviewed, nor had any value added to it by a publisher (such as formatting, copy-editing, technical enhancements). A preprint server, or working paper repository as they are also known, allows users to share these documents.

SSRN has been serving the research community since 1994 and was acquired by Elsevier in May 2016. Since joining Elsevier, SSRN has completely redesigned its website making it cleaner and easier to use. It has also launched full-text search. SSRN is now working towards deeper integration with Elsevier's other research products, particularly Mendeley's reference management software and Pure's research management system.
