The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that bepress has entered into an agreement with CLOCKSS to preserve ejournals hosted on bepress Digital Commons publishing repositories.

Grand Valley State University
Kennesaw State University
University of Massachusetts Amherst
University of Nevada Las Vegas
