Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
University of California Press Journals & Digital Publishing Division has entered into an agreement with Portico for the long-term preservation of its journal content. Portico provides a permanent archive of electronic scholarly journals, ensuring that they will continue to be secure and accessible in the future. Following on from the existing Portico agreement to archive digital content for Anthrosource, the premier online collection of anthropology scholarship from the American Anthropological Association, UC Press now has its entire list of journals archived by Portico. By adhering to industry standard archiving methods, Portico meets library demands for a trusted, reliable third party archive. UC Press has designated the archive as an official delivery platform for post-cancellation access claims.
UC Press's ongoing relationship with JSTOR and the new agreement with Portico are evidence of its commitment to a strong long-term preservation strategy. The Press is very enthusiastic to be working with both organizations to ensure that its publications will always be available in a digital format.
"Partnering with Portico affirms our commitment to permanent archiving. We want authors, librarians and scholarly society clients alike to feel confident that UC Press is doing everything possible to assure the content we publish will be available in perpetuity," Rebecca Simon, Associate Director for Journals and Digital Publishing
