The Scholarly Kitchen

The mission of the Society for Scholarly Publishing is “[t]o advance scholarly publishing and communication, and the professional development of its members through education, collaboration, and networking.” The Scholarly Kitchen is a moderated and independent blog aimed to help fulfill this mission by bringing together differing opinions, commentary, and ideas, and presenting them openly.

The Society for Scholarly Publishing established The Scholarly Kitchen in February 2008 to:

  1. Keep SSP members and interested parties aware of new developments in publishing
  2. Point to research reports and projects
  3. Interpret the significance of relevant research in a balanced way (or occasionally in a provocative way)
  4. Suggest areas that need more input by identifying gaps in knowledge
  5. Translate findings from related endeavors (publishing outside STM, online business, user trends)
  6. Attract the community of STM information experts interested in these things and give them a place to contribute

SPARC Europe

SPARC Europe is one of Europe’s key and long-standing voices advocating for unfettered access to research and data — for the academic community; for the whole of society.

More openness in research, we believe, will lead to an accelerated rate of discovery in academia and in the private sector, and of learning at every strata of education.

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) Europe is a non-profit, member organisation comprised of a diverse body of academic institutions, library consortia, funding bodies, research institutes and some publishers, among others; all committed to delivering on the promise of open access and open science.
