Together we preserve scholarship for future generations

Since 1999, academic publishers have collaborated with libraries to provide a global digital archive to ensure the long-term survival of digital scholarly content. This is because in the print world libraries were solely responsible for the long-term preservation of scholarship. When scholarly content transitioned online this became a shared responsibility. Publishers hold the content, and libraries are responsible for its long-term curation.

CLOCKSS was born as the trusted collaborative archive jointly owned and governed by libraries and publishers. This ensures that libraries feel secure that the content they license from publishers is guaranteed to always be accessible. Today book and journal publishers deposit their content in at least one, and ideally three, long-term archives. This is required by many libraries as a condition of doing business.

In brief, preserving your content in an archive like CLOCKSS makes it easier for publishers to license content to libraries or to publish their researcher’s works Open Access.

The world’s leading academic publishers have entrusted the long-term preservation of their published content to the CLOCKSS archive.
