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 platform was established in 2008 and includes a blog, a podcast series, and heaps of useful tools and information for both early career researchers and senior scholars.
Early Career Development Podcasts
The Society for Scholarly Publishing’s (SSP’s) Career Development Committee has launched a podcast series for early career publishing professionals. Co-hosted by Meredith Adinolfi (Cell Press) and Sara Grimme (Digital Science), the podcast series offers advice and discussion on how early career publishing professionals can add to their skill sets, develop networks, and take advantage of opportunities. The series presents interviews and insights from experienced professionals on how to navigate one’s career in a diverse and ever-changing landscape of scholarly communications.
The Scholarly Kitchen also runs several blog/article collections with regular contribution from writers and academics from different disciplines and backgrounds. Topics include open access publishing, diversity and inclusion in academia, peer review, technology and disruption and many more.
