Emerald partners with CLOCKSS Archive to preserve ejournals and ebooks

The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Emerald Group Publishing 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.

“As part of Emerald’s commitment to service improvement, we are pleased to now be preserving our ejournals and ebooks with the CLOCKSS Archive. As a global publisher in scholarly research, higher education and professional development, it is imperative that we are able to protect our research and ensure it is available for our global audience to access at their convenience via CLOCKSS” said Peter Shelley, Managing Director – Western Hemisphere, Emerald Group Publishing.

CLOCKSS Executive Director Craig Van Dyck adds, “By archiving with CLOCKSS, Emerald has ensured that the scholarship in their publications will be available for a worldwide audience now and in the future in a manner that secures them for the long-term good of scholars.”
