E-Journal Archiving in Action

Oxford Journals announced this week that the journal Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention, which had been discontinued, will be stop being hosted on the Oxford Journals site and will instead be accessible through Portico (for members of Portico like the University of Liverpool) and through CLOCKSS.

This joins two SAGE journals, Auto/Biography and Graft: Organ and Cell Transplantation, which last year stopped being hosted on SAGE Journals Online and instead became available through these same two e-journal archiving platforms.

These actions demonstrate that publishers are collaborating with global e-journal archiving solutions to ensure the permanent preservation of online journals even when the publisher decides to no longer host the journals themselves. Most major publishers are members of Portico and/or CLOCKSS.
