Securing the Future of Database Content. De Gruyter Now Using the CLOCKSS Archive

May 8, 2013

De Gruyter is pleased to announce that it is now archiving its 36 databases and 55 eBookPLUS at the CLOCKSS Archive. CLOCKSS is a US-based non-profit whose mission is to provide for the long-term digital archiving of academic publications. Partnership with CLOCKSS ensures that in the event of server failure and data loss, De Gruyter's content will remain globally available to the scientific community. The permanent backup of digital archives is particularly useful for libraries seeking to preserve their electronic collections.

"By archiving our digital content with CLOCKSS, we are fulfilling a wish frequently voiced by customers," says Sven Fund, Managing Director of De Gruyter. "We are glad to have found a first-class partner who will ensure that the valuable work of our authors and publishers remains accessible to all users long into the future."

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds: "The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes De Gruyter's decision to upload its databases and eBookPLUS to our storage systems. By archiving content at CLOCKSS, De Gruyter will guarantee that its valuable publications remain available now and in the future to all generations of researchers worldwide."
