ANU Press Preserves with the CLOCKSS Archive

The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with The Australian National University Press 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.

Manager of ANU Press says, “ANU Press is delighted to have its books preserved in the CLOCKSS Archive. By being a part of this initiative the ANU’s commitment to Open Access is reinforced; we are very excited our publications will be available to a wider audience and preserved for many years to come.”

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, “Australia National University is an engaged Board member and leader, so it is a pleasure to welcome their University Press’s participation. By archiving with CLOCKSS, ANU Press 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.”

About: ANU E Press, as it was originally known, was established in 2003 to explore and enable new modes of scholarly publishing. Taking advantage of new information and communication technologies to make available the intellectual output of the ANU academic community, ANU E Press was Australia’s first primarily electronic academic publisher. ANU Press produces fully peer-reviewed research publications and is recognised as a commercial publisher, enabling ANU Press authors to gain full recognition under the Higher Education Research Data Collection scheme. http://press.anu.edu.au
