STM Annual US Conference – Society Day 2020

STM Annual Conference returns for 2020 - Save the Dates!!

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

Opening keynote: Jasper Simons, Chief Publishing Officer of the American Psychological Association (APA).

As societies navigate the challenges in the scholarly communications landscape, opportunities emerge for publishers who boldly seek new ways of delivering value to their communities.

Many scholarly societies and associations rely on their journal publishing programs to generate prestige and resources for the organization. With the pressures on the library subscription model not waning, how are publishers responding? Reminiscing about the “good old days” is not an option. Some publishers have started exciting new initiatives to diversify their programs. At the 2020 STM Society Day, you will meet publishers who are leading the way in ensuring that their scholarly societies continue to play a vital role in the world of tomorrow. 

We are excited to announce the opening keynote by Jasper Simons, Chief Publishing Officer of the American Psychological Association (APA). Jasper has put the APA on an innovative new growth path to push psychology beyond the lab. In recent years, he and his team have developed new product lines that will ensure the future relevance of the association and the field.

During his presentation, Jasper will share how he collaborated with internal stakeholders to develop a new publishing strategy. He will draw upon his experiences in securing organizational buy-in and funding. He will share what challenges he faced in moving the organization in a new direction. And he will provide a path as other publishers consider their own options for staying relevant in today’s turbulent times.
