(6 February 2013) The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has redesigned its website, accessible at www.sspnet.org.
Easier navigation, a cleaner design, and more streamlined event registration and login procedures as well as a more friendly user interface were the driving forces for the redesign.
“The new site is much more flexible, and surfaces important content, discussions, and activities that are happening in this dynamic society,” she continued. “Volunteers, including Task Force Leaders Anne Orens, Rebecca McCleod, and Tony Alves worked closely with our Resource Center for Associations staff and Windmill Design to make this happen.”
Divided into key sections of EVENTS, CAREERS, COMMUNITY, and RESOURCES, the site presents a wealth of content to SSP members and professionals looking to explore a career in scholarly publishing. Easy access to members-only areas is found via the COMMUNITY section, and the popular job listings – from publishers around the globe – are rapidly accessible under CAREERS.
A key feature of the new website is the expanded SSP Library, containing more than five years of past material from SSP Annual Meetings, IN Conferences, webinars, and more. Now fully searchable by presenter name, topic/keyword, and year, the SSP Library offers members and visitors case studies, lessons learned, and industry forecasts captured in video, audio, and slides shows.
