CLOCKSS is a collaborative initiative by a group of organizations drawn from publishers, libraries and learned societies. Over a two-year period members will test the [[lockss:|LOCKSS]] technology and social model to support a 'large dark archive' that is both fail-safe and has an acceptable process for providing continuing access for orphaned materials.

CLOCKSS is a Controlled use of LOCKSS for the purpose of ensuring the promise of long term access to published scholarly content in digital format. It provides additional functionality to that of the use of the LOCKSS system ("Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe") which is widely known in the scholarly communications world as a technology for ensuring the integrity of digital content, and is used as part of preservation strategies for electronic journals to which libraries subscribe.

The initiative, which begin early in 2006, is using a significant and representative portion of the total corpus from the publisher members. It will replicate this content using a version of LOCKSS within a network of institutions and libraries of long standing, thus providing prospect of longevity, across geography, and accountable to a joint board drawn representing learned societies, publishers and libraries, thus providing control needed by all sectors.

CLOCKSS is regarded as an extension of the stewardship that research libraries have collectively played for the printed format and a keystone in the transition that is being made to dependence upon access to digital material. The purpose of the CLOCKSS initiative is to test assurance that the prospect of access to journals and their content will survive various types of disaster in order to serve the entire world wide research community now and into the future. The CLOCKSS members will report findings to the wider community and solicit advise and feedback as we work towards a proposal for a full-scale archiving model as part of global strategies for preservation of published scholarly work.

Our Mission

CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s leading academic publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.

CLOCKSS is for the entire world's benefit. Content no longer available from any publisher ("triggered content") is available for free. CLOCKSS uniquely assigns this abandoned and orphaned content a Creative Commons license to ensure it remains available forever.
