iSchool faculty are presenting their research at the 46th Annual Meeting of the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), which will be held from May 29-31 in Boston. The theme of this year's conference is "Inflection Point: Setting the Course for the Future of Scholarly Communication." The SSP is a nonprofit organization whose members represent all aspects of scholarly publishing—publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors.

Associate Professor Jodi Schneider will present “Only You Can Prevent Research Integrity Fires! What Practices Contribute to Improving Research Integrity and How Can You Help?”
Research communications has a role to play in ensuring the integrity of the research ecosystem. In her talk, Schneider will discuss how tools such as CrossRef’s Retractions Watch dataset, the STM Integrity Hub, and NISO’s new Recommended Practice on Communications of Retractions and Expressions of Concern (CREC) can help keep the research ecosystem safe. 

Affiliate Professor Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe led the workshop, “Charleston Trendspotting Initiative: Setting the Course.” The Trendspotting Initiative is a community-engaged process for exploring social, policy, economic, technology, and educational trends and forecasting the impacts of these trends on scholarly communication, publishing, and academic libraries. Workshop participants explored the potential implications of policies and events on trust and transparency in scholarly communications and discussed the possible effects on the industry.
