Pensoft Publishers is pleased to announce the full integration of its open access journals with the CLOCKSS Archive. The partnership reflects Pensoft's vision for the long-term availability of open access scholarly content for the global research community. The CLOCKSS Archive guarantees Pensoft's journals will remain intact, securely stored, and freely available in perpetuity. As an added benefit, Pensoft is participating in the international Global LOCKSS Network supporting libraries and their local collections.
LOCKSS is based on the principle of "lots of copies keep stuff safe". It's award-winning technology serves multiple copies of original, authoritative content across a secure, network of participating libraries and publishers around the globe. As a LOCKSS participant, libraries and publishers ensure their readers are served authentic, authoritative content when the publisher's website is unavailable ensuring authorized reader access to publisher branded content.
Similarly, CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a dark archive that preserves copies of original, authoritative content and stores them in a select number of secure locations. CLOCKSS uniquely assigns this abandoned and orphaned content with a creative commons license to ensure it remains available in perpetuity. As a non-profit joint effort between the world's leading scholarly publishers and research libraries, CLOCKSS is governed by and for its stakeholders. Its participants decide its procedures, priorities, and protocols.
CLOCKSS is a sustainable, geographicall
