The CLOCKSS Archive has partnered with Pensoft Publishers to preserve their e-journals in CLOCKSS's geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. By archiving with CLOCKSS, Pensoft demonstrate their commitment to the long-term preservation of the electronic versions of their journals. This ensures that an author's work will always be fully accessible and usable, as it provides for content to be freely available to everyone even if it ceases to be available from the publisher's site after a "trigger event".
"The partnership with CLOCKSS represents a significant expansion of our archiving activities, with fully automated harvesting, import and preservation of the electronic content of our Open Access journals. Besides, the feature of archiving with CLOCKSS renders our publishing system even more attractive for other publishers to use", said Dr Lyubomir Penev, managing director of Pensoft.
CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, "The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes Pensoft Publishers' e-journals with their coverage of biodiversity science, plant systematics, phylogeny and biogeography into the community's archive. By archiving with CLOCKSS, Pensoft Publishers have ensured that the scholarship in their publications will remain available to a wide audience in the long term. We are grateful, as Pensoft Publishers join the CLOCKSS Archive, for their generous willingness to preserve their e-journals, and we are proud that they do so with us."
