CLOCKSS IS COMMUNITY-LED

The archive is governed by and for, its beneficiaries, not a third-party. Publishers and librarians have equal say in deciding procedures, priorities, and when to trigger content.

CLOCKSS IS SECURE

CLOCKSS's decentralized, geographically disparate preservation model ensures that the digital assets of the scholarly community will survive intact. Additionally, it satisfies the demand for locally situated archives with 12 archive nodes worldwide.

CLOCKSS IS COLLABORATIVE

CLOCKSS participants have the opportunity to be deeply involved in all aspects of our industry and help to keep the community’s best interests at the forefront. CLOCKSS participates in the community and represents the shared interests of libraries and publishers on industry policies and practices.

CLOCKSS IS UNIQUE

For libraries and publishers that do not want to put "all their eggs in one basket," CLOCKSS adds a distinctive option to the mix of archiving solutions.

CLOCKSS IS SUSTAINABLE

Low operating costs make it possible for institutions of all sizes and budgets to participate in CLOCKSS. Participation is affordable, and our goal is to lower the cost of participation over time. Fees are shown here: https://clockss.org/join-clockss/
