American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Preserves with the CLOCKSS Archive

The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics to preserve their ejournals and ebooks in CLOCKSS’s geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. This action provides for content to be freely available to everyone after a “trigger event” and ensures an author’s work will be maximally accessible and useful over time.

“AIAA is excited about this agreement with CLOCKSS as it ensures that the legacy of our member’s work – their publications – will be available to readers around the world in case of an event that would render AIAA’s publications unusable,” said Sandra Magnus, AIAA executive director.” CLOCKSS ensures that the works will endure, and that they will continue to enlighten and inspire future generations of aerospace engineers and scientists for a long time to come.”

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, “By archiving with CLOCKSS, AIAA has ensured that the scholarship in their publications will be available for a worldwide audience now and in the future in a manner that secures them for the long-term good of scholars.”
