Working together for the scholarly community

The CLOCKSS archive is governed by and for its beneficiaries, not a third-party. Publishers and librarians have equal say in deciding policies, priorities, and when to trigger content so that it becomes openly available in perpetuity.

To be successful we must think beyond CLOCKSS. We must work together. That is why we are committed to equality and diversity and seek to collaborate with partners located all around the world. Our ‘common good’ approach is doing what is in the best interest of the global scholarly community and the knowledge we work to preserve.

We are dedicated to working in partnership with libraries, publishers, and other key stakeholders to mitigate potential issues and risks, to seek future-proofing solutions, and to reduce stress or concerns for members of the scholarly community.
