Just heard that it is Kent Anderson vs Charles Watkinson for president elect of the "Society for Scholarly Publishing". Anderson is the head honcho at "The Scholarly Kitchen" a publishing blog that I find distasteful in many ways, including most recently that they have as one of their bloggers the person the Heartland Institute has recruited to make anti-science teaching curricula. The Scholarly Kitchen and Kent Anderson have not expressed any concerns about Wojick being one of their bloggers (eg., see http://phylogenomics.blogspot.com/2012/02/hey-scholarly-kitchen-do-you-support.html ). And in general Anderson is as far as I can tell decidedly anti open-access in many ways. Watkinson is the Director of Purdue University Press and seems pretty solid all around. If you have any voting role in SSP I encourage you to vote for Watkinson.
