The 35th Annual Meeting of the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), held from June 5 to 7, 2013, in San Francisco, was an interesting and rewarding experience. With the theme “Surviving (and Thriving!) in Our Multi-Access World: Navigating the New Publishing Paradigm,” it provided insights on a broad range of issues in scholarly publishing, from open access to Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs). Remarkably, the meeting saw over 800 attendees, of diverse backgrounds: journal editors, librarians, publishers, etc. It also had quite an international flavor, with participants and speakers from Turkey, Japan, Egypt, Brazil, and India, in addition to the US. The exhibitors too were a diverse group: HighWire, Microsoft Research, Thomson Reuters, the British Library, etc.

Marisha Fonseca, Managing Editor of Psychology and Psychosocial Healthcare at Editage, Cactus, was one of two recipients of an international travel grant awarded by the SSP to promising young professionals in the field of academic publishing. The grant was given to attend SSP’s 35th Annual Meeting in San Francisco. Fonseca covers the event in this published report appearing in European Science Editing.
