Based in the North America office, Susan has been with Crossref since 2008 and is part of the Member & Community Outreach Team. She works closely with our global community of small publisher members, focusing on the tools and resources that address their specific needs. In collaboration with her colleagues on the Outreach team, she also works with many of our Sponsors and Ambassadors to better support the growing number of smaller organizations. When not at work, Susan can be found long-distance running but will always stop to pet a passing dog.

Crossref LIVE Brazil evoked vibrant Q&A session

There has been a steady increase in the growth of our membership in Latin America—and in Brazil in particular—over the past few years. We currently have more than 800 Brazil-based members; some as individual members, but most are sponsored by another organization. As part of our LIVE Local program Chuck Koscher and I traveled to meet some of these members in Goiânia and Fortaleza, where we co-hosted events with Associação Brasileira de Editores Científicos do Brasil (ABEC Brasil)—one of our largest Sponsors.
