Manchester University Press to preserve e-journals with Portico

    Portico is pleased to announce that Manchester University Press (MUP) has entered into an agreement with Portico to preserve its e-journals. Through this agreement with Portico, MUP ensures that its e-journals will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students.

    “We are excited to participate in Portico,” said David Rodgers, MUP chief executive. “Our journals represent the best of new research in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and Portico offers a suitably high-quality archive solution. We are very pleased that there is such a technologically advanced, well-realized solution to make our content securely and perpetually available to scholars and librarians all over the world.”

    Founded in 1904, MUP is the third largest university press in England. MUP has a worldwide reputation for making innovative and high-quality scholarship available to the widest possible readership in both print and electronic formats, with particular strengths in the Humanities and Social Sciences. They manage a portfolio of 14 journals, many of which are published on behalf of or in collaboration with learned societies and institutions, and publish 145 new books a year.

    Portico will be a mechanism to provide post-cancellation access to the titles committed to the archive.
