The Scholarly Kitchen: What's Hot and Cooking in Scholarly Publishing?

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has established the Scholarly Kitchen - a comprehensive resource and place to go to for exciting dialogue on current trends and information on what's happening in the scholarly publishing community!

The blog, launched this spring, is primarily written by Kent Anderson, an SSP board member and Executive Director, International Business & Product Development at Massachusetts Medical Society/The New England Journal of Medicine. Other frequent contributors include Howard Ratner of the Nature Publishing Group and Phil Davis from Cornell University.

The moderated blog keeps all those interested in scholarly publishing at the forefront of new developments in publishing by pointing to relevant research reports and projects and helps to interpret the significance of this information in a balanced and, occasionally, provocative way. The Scholarly Kitchen also reports and translates findings from related business endeavors in other areas of publishing as well as from online businesses and other related emerging trends.

Since launching, the Scholarly Kitchen has had over 9200 hits and has featured top posts like The "h-index": An Objective Mismeasure? and Market-based Solution to Info-glut.

Come visit us at the Scholarly Kitchen : and join us for A Balanced Diet of Ideas, Interpretation, and Inspiration!
