Advertising Policy

This policy, developed by the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) ensures adherence to the ethical standards of advertising and defines the eligibility of products and services for advertising in SSP media, including Solutions Source for Scholarly Communications. By submitting ads/listings for consideration, all advertisers agree to SSP’s Advertising Policy. Any individual or organization submitting a listing is considered an advertiser.

SSP, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to decline any submitted advertisement/listing or to discontinue publication of any advertisement/listing previously accepted for any reason. Products or services eligible for advertising/listings in SSP media properties shall be germane to, effective in, and useful in the practice of scholarly communication. Advertising for products and services for the general public (direct to consumer advertising for products and services and public service advertising) is accepted for some SSP media and will be reviewed on an individual basis.

Some space may not be available on the Solutions Source website for sale to commercial advertisers. The appearance of advertising in SSP media is not an endorsement by SSP of the product or service. As a matter of policy, SSP will sell advertising space in its media properties when the inclusion of advertising does not interfere with the mission, objectives, or ethical standards of SSP or its publications. SSP, at its discretion, may suppress an advertisement on a particular page if it determines displaying the advertisement could imply a conflict of interest.

Advertisers on SSP websites receive only aggregated data about responses to advertisements. No personal information is released. Such data may include the number of impressions (views) and the number of click-throughs to an advertiser’s site.
Advertisements/listings will not be accepted if they:

SSP is not responsible for content on other sites reached by click-throughs from advertisements on SSP media nor for any information requested by the producers of such non-SSP websites after a click through.

Digital Ad Guidelines

Digital advertisements must be readily distinguishable from editorial content in format and appearance, and the word “Advertisement” or “Sponsored Content” will be displayed alongside this content.

Viewers will not be sent to a commercial site unless they choose to do so by clicking on an advertisement or listing. Advertisements/listings may link off-site to a commercial website; however, they shall not prevent the viewer from returning to the SSP website or other previously viewed screens, and shall not redirect the viewer to a website the viewer did not intend to visit. SSP reserves the right to not link to or to remove links to other websites. The website URL to which the advertisement links must clearly display the organization sponsoring the website and must not require registration of personal information before a user reaches the website.

Digital advertisements may appear as static, rotating, or animated advertisements. Expanding, audio, and video advertisements are prohibited.

All advertising must be reviewed and approved by SSP staff, including the website landing page to which the advertisement links.
