From the Announcement:

The AMA’s “Archives of Family Medicine” and “JAMA Français” are now available from the CLOCKSS Archive. The American Medical Association announced on January 23rd that the journals “Archives of Family Medicine” and “JAMA Français” are no longer available from their journal site and will be accessible through the CLOCKSS Archive.

“Archives of Family Medicine” and “JAMA Français” were removed from the Highwire platform on August 15, 2011. The CLOCKSS Archives, the AMA’s preservation partners, will provide free access to the title and take responsibility for its ongoing long-term preservation.

“The AMA, along with the founding members of the CLOCKSS Archive, agreed early on to make triggered content in CLOCKSS available to the world for free,” explains Randy Kiefer, Executive Director of the CLOCKSS Archive. “That policy sets the CLOCKSS Archive apart, and is a result of the community-based governance by libraries and publishers. The CLOCKSS Archive’s digital preservation efforts enable libraries of all sizes to serve future scholars, researchers, and students.”
