Archiving Policy

 

This journal utilizes the LOCKSS , CLOCKSS and ICI Journals Indexing systems to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. 

LOCKSS: Open Journal Systems supports the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system to ensure a secure and permanent archive for the journal. LOCKSS is open source software developed at Stanford University Library that enables libraries to preserve selected web journals by regularly polling registered journal websites for newly published content and archiving it. Each archive is continually validated against other library caches, and if content is found to be corrupted or lost, the other caches or the journal is used to restore it. 

CLOCKSS: Open Journal Systems also supports the CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system to ensure a secure and permanent archive for the journal. CLOCKSS is based upon the open-source LOCKSS software developed at Stanford University Library that enables libraries to preserve selected web journals by regularly polling registered journal websites for newly published content and archiving it. Each archive is continually validated against other library caches, and if content is found to be corrupted or lost, the other caches or the journal is used to restore it.

 

ICI Journals Indexing: Open Journal Systems also supports the ICI Journals Master List database (Index Copernicus International). ICI World of Journals is the third largest international database. In 2014 the number of registered journals amounted to about 22 thousand. Since then, more and more Editorial offices have decided to present their publication achievements to the scientists from all over the world. Currently, there are over 45 thousand journals that are registered in the database and the number of users visiting our website exceeds 70 thousand from 150 countries every month.
