Society for Sedimentary Geology Preserves with the CLOCKSS Archive

The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the SEPM Society for Sedimentary Geology 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.

“SEPM is glad to have its digital archives of its journal and book publications protected for the future with CLOCKSS so that subscribers and purchasers of its content can be confident about future access,” said Dr. Howard E Harper, Jr., Executive Director.

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, “By archiving with CLOCKSS, the Society for Sedimentary Geology 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.”
