The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has announced the launch of its OnDemand Video Content Library, an innovative, “anywhere, anytime” alternative to the traditional webinar broadcast, designed for scholarly communications professionals to learn about timely topics and recent developments in publishing. As part of a generous in-kind sponsorship, Cadmore Media and 3Play Media have provided video hosting, transcription, and closed-captioning services.
This asynchronous learning platform offers a variety of free and paid content that users can access when and where they need it. New content will be released each week through early fall for the initial content series; free materials and paid recordings can be accessed individually or as part of a curated series.Special broadcasts with live chats provide an opportunity to interact with presenters and others interested in the topic, and videos include fully searchable transcripts and rich metadata to facilitate discovery.
As part of this new initiative, SSP is debuting their “2020 Professional Development Series,” presentations and talks on current trends and issues in scholarly communications—from the impact of COVID-19 to diversity, equity, and inclusion in publishing—available at your convenience. All sessions may be accessed asynchronously after their release date, but registrants can also interact with presenters and fellow audience members during live screenings. Videos will be offered on the following topics: Business Models and Strategies; Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion; Editorial Innovations; Ethics and Standards; Global Trends; and Research Perspectives.
Pricing discounts are available for individuals who purchase multiple sessions and for organisations that want to secure a license granting access to all content in a series for many users. To purchase access to a video or series or to see the release schedule, interested parties may visit https://www.sspnet.org/events/ondemand.
