June 8, 2016 - CLOCKSS today announced that eight additional publishers are working with the archive to preserve their publications for future generations of researchers.


CLOCKSS, the decentralized preservation archive that ensures that the digital assets of the community will survive intact, simultaneously announced the support of fourteen more libraries.


“The American Nuclear Society is pleased to archive our scientific literature with CLOCKSS,” said Rick Michal, ANS director of Scientific Publications and Standards. “Partnering with CLOCKSS shows ANS’s commitment to the ideals of scholarly publishing, which is to secure our published content for the continued benefit of the scientific community.”


“We at Berrett-Koehler are delighted to have the content in our subscription business, BKpedia, archived in CLOCKSS. They perform a critical service for patrons of BKpedia, and we’re grateful to have CLOCKSS as a valued collaborator in serving our community of readers,” said Johanna Vondeling, Vice President, International Sales and Business Development.


“The Journal of Law and Health, published by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, at Cleveland State University, is very pleased to archive its content on CLOCKSS.  In addition to providing additional content accessibility for medical-legal researchers, the service provided by CLOCKSS helps the Journal to be compliant with National Library of Medicine requirements for inclusion in PubMed/Medline,” said Laura E. Ray, Outreach & Instructional Services Librarian, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.


"As publishers of a new, online-only journal, the archiving services provided by CLOCKSS are invaluable to reassuring authors and readers that their work will be permanently accessible and not disappear in the mists of the internet," added  Jesper Sørensen, Editor-in-Chief of Sociological Science.


"It is vital for us that our publications remain online for future researchers to use, which is why we are extremely happy to be working with the CLOCKSS archive. It is important for us, and our researchers to know that their work is safe and secure for years to come," explained Frederick Fenter, Executive Editor, Frontiers.


“The CLOCKSS Archive is very pleased to welcome these additional publishers to our digitalpreservation system, and to welcome the support of additional libraries. It is a sign of the shared commitment to long-term access for researchers, that publishers and libraries continue to cooperate to maintain and enhance the CLOCKSS Archive,” added CLOCKSS Executive Director Craig Van Dyck.
