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

    “We are delighted to join Portico as our journals portfolio is growing,” Arend Kuster, managing director of QScience.com said. “Digital preservation is central to our strategy and we know that researchers, scientists, and librarians want to make sure that their research is accessible for future generations. Our recent agreement highlights that we are taking our mission to serve the authors and scholarly community very seriously and are striving to offer the best service.”

    QScience.com is a collaborative, peer-reviewed online publishing platform. Developed by Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, QScience.com’s goal is to create a unique and collaborative research environment for Qatar and the rest of the world.

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