The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with ALPSP to preserve their ejournals and ebooks in CLOCKSS’s geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. This action provides for content to be freely available to everyone after a “trigger event” and ensures an author’s work will be maximally accessible and useful over time.
ALPSP Chief Executive, Audrey McCulloch, commented, “We’re delighted to archive our content with CLOCKSS, to ensure the long term preservation of our journal, Learned Publishing and our ebooks. Our content is a highly regarded record of the development of scholarly communication and will serve as an important archive for future generations.”
CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, “The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes ALPSP’s ejournals and ebooks with their coverage of academic and professional information, into the community’s archive. By archiving with CLOCKSS, ALPSP has ensured that the scholarship in their publications will continue to remain widely available to the academic community in the future. We are grateful, as ALPSP joins the CLOCKSS Archive, for its generous willingness to preserve its ejournals in a way that secures them for the long-term good of scholars worldwide.”
