SSP roadtrip for the Crossref team

What do you think of when you think of Chicago? Deep dish pizza? Art Deco architecture? Well for one week only this year you can add scholarly publishing to the list as the #SSP2018 Conference comes to town. Some Crossref people are excited to be heading out for the conference, and we’re looking forward to meeting as many of our members as possible. Come along to stand 212A and talk to Anna Tolwinska about Participation Reports.
