CCC is thrilled to be sponsoring and attending this year’s Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois from June 1-3. True to the theme of “Building a More Connected Scholarly Community,” this in-person event will bring together academics, funders, librarians, publishers, and more from across the globe. As a Gold Sponsor, CCC looks forward to connecting with our peers in the scholarly publishing community during a series of breaks throughout the event, and three different sessions across the three days. We’re particularly excited this year to be collaborating with our new colleagues at Ringgold, who will be at the show at Booth 312.
On Day 1, CCC will be hosting Open Access Agreement Modeling: What Does it Take to Construct a Sustainable Deal? Presented by CCC’s Senior Director, Information and Content Solutions, Jamie Carmichael and RightsLink for Scientific Communications Product Manager, Shannon Reville, this session will provide an overview of how publishers are currently modeling OA agreements and discuss emerging best practices, technology and tips learned along the way. This will be an interactive session where participants are encouraged to share examples from their own experiences and discuss practical tools to solve these challenges. Attendees will walk away with actionable steps to better prepare for data-driven negotiations to construct agreements that are built for success.
Day 2 will see CCC’s Jamie Carmichael joined by Heather Staines, Director of Community Engagement & Senior Consultant, Delta Think; Sara Rouhi, Director of Strategic Partnerships, PLOS; and Curtis Brundy, Associate University Librarian for Scholarly Communications and Collections, Iowa State University; for Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the Most Common Open Access Agreements. This panel will review key elements of the most common OA agreements, together with “breaking news” insights from a study examining the extent of “transformation” seen to date in the research community. Panelists will share the importance of good data, open communication, and transparency in the publishing process. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how to approach the most common deals, how to better prepare for these negotiations, and to operationalize the end result.
The final day will feature CCC’s Charles Hemenway, Publisher Solutions Director, participating in SSP’s Preview Session The Future of OA Agreement Modeling and Analysis, giving a preview of what’s next from CCC. Join us for the first look at a new market offering for the scholarly publishing community.
