Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor & Coordinator for Research and Teaching Professional Development, has received the Distinguished Service Award from the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP).
This award, created in 2003, is given to an SSP member for his or her work over an extended period (3 or more years) on behalf of SSP and the field of scholarly communication.
SSP members represent all aspects of scholarly publishing — including publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors.
“My very last task is as Past President, and very, very great privilege and pleasure is presenting the Distinguished Service Award,” remarked Past-President of SSP Alice Meadows as she presented the award. “This is an award that’s given to a member for their work over an extended period of time on behalf of SSP and the wider field of scholarly communication. And the person that we decided to give the award to this year has a long history of contributions to SSP and to the wider community, including as a Scholarly Kitchen chef since 2018, one of the most highly read, and as a former board member. She also developed and delivered a very popular SSP OA workshop, a couple of times now and ongoing. She most recently chaired the Learning Publishing North American Editor Task Force, and it’s actually very lovely to be making this award to a librarian.”
Hinchliffe says of receiving the award, “I am incredibly honored to have been chosen. There are so many people who contribute immensely to SSP in order to build our vibrant and future-forward association. It is an absolute pleasure to be part of this great community.”
The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), founded in 1978, is a nonprofit organization formed to promote and advance communication among all sectors of the scholarly publication community through networking, information dissemination, and facilitation of new developments in the field.
