"We are very happy to be included in the CLOCKSS archiving repository,” said Lenny Teytelman Co-Founder of protocols.io.“ As Vint Cerf has been [http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31450389/ arguing], there is a high danger of loss of information, as society increasingly moves to digital records and publishing. This problem is particularly acute in research publishing where persistence is critical for trust in and reproducibility of research. Of course, the solution is not to regress and archive everything on paper. The solution is to come up with ways of ensuring the long-term preservation of research information. This is why it is very important to our company and to the scientists sharing on protocols.io, that their knowledge is backed up and preserved long into the future."

|item-title= CLOCKSS Archive certified as Trusted Digital Repository; Garners top score in Technologies
|item-body= The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Finnish Society of Forest Science to preserve their ejournal in CLOCKSS's geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the worldThis 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.
+
|item-body= The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) announced the completion of an eight-month audit of the CLOCKSS Archive and has certified the CLOCKSS Archive as a trustworthy digital repositoryCLOCKSS is the only organization to earn a perfect score of 5 in the Technologies, Technical Infrastructure, and Security category. CLOCKSS also attained the highest score received by any organization that has undergone this independent audit.
  
CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer said, “The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes the Finnish Society of Forest Science’s ejournal with their coverage of forest science, into the community's archive.  By archiving with CLOCKSS, the Finnish Society of Forest Science 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."
+
A team of prestigious digital preservation experts conducted the audit with reference to generally accepted best practices in the management of digital systems; the interests of its community of research libraries; the practices and needs of scholarly researchers in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences in the United States and Canada; and ISO and National Archives and Records Administration standards. The purpose of the audit was to obtain assurance that CLOCKSS provides, and will likely continue to provide, services adequate to those needs without material flaws or defects and as described in CLOCKSS’s public disclosures.
  
About:  The Finnish Society of Forest Science was founded in 1909 to promote research in forest and wood science in Finland. The Society is a network of researchers and it strives to enhance the links between researchers and practical foresters and promote public interest in forest research.  
+
“On behalf of the CLOCKSS board, I would like to thank CRL for its certification of the CLOCKSS service, and for thoughtful suggestions about how we can continue to develop and improve,” said Alicia Wise, Publisher Co-Chair of the CLOCKSS Board.  “The 725 library supporters and 200 publisher partners in CLOCKSS already value the terrific team that delivers the CLOCKSS service, and this independent certification should inspire others committed to the long-term preservation of quality academic content to reach out and learn more.” 
  
Finnish Society of Forest Science started science publishing in 1913 by establishing the journal Acta Forestalia Fennica. Its first issue contained two monograph-style research reports written in German. During the early years, the publications of the Society were commonly edited in Finnish or German but some papers appeared in English or French. Silva Fennica was established in 1926 for publishing ”short” research reports, i.e. articles written in the concise style of today’s research articles. The Finnish Society of Forest Science started publishing cooperation with the Finnish Forest Research Institute in 1994 and English became the only publishing language of Silva Fennica. The same year, online publication of the abstracts began. Open access publication of whole text articles in the Internet began in 1998. Thus, Silva Fennica was among the first international scientific journals to go online. In 2000, Acta Forestalia Fennica merged with Silva Fennica because submission of monographs almost ceased.
+
The certification is based upon a site visit and sampling of triggered archives content, and upon the review of information gathered by CRL and its Certification Advisory Panel and documents and documentation provided by CLOCKSS. CRL’s analysis was guided by the criteria included in the Trustworthy Repositories Audit and Certification checklist, and other metrics developed by CRL on the basis of its analyses of digital repositories.  
  
Silva Fennica has established reputation as one of leading forest science journals of the world. The 100th year of forest science publishing by the Finnish Society of Forest Science, 2013, brings another important change for Silva Fennica because it goes online only. Open access publishing will continue.  http://www.metsatieteellinenseura.fi/julkaisut
+
"CRL’s review found the CLOCKSS approach, with its simple and flexible technical architecture, to be particularly well suited to the rapidly evolving landscape of  e-journal publishing and scholarly practice” said Bernard Reilly, President of CRL.

The CLOCKSS Archive announces the trigger of two journals for open access

January 9, 2017

The CLOCKSS Archive today announced that BoneKEy Reports, published by Springer Nature on behalf of the International Bone and Mineral Society, and Tijdschrift voor tijdschrift¬studies (Journal for the Study of Periodical Media) published by Projectgroep Tijdschriftstudies and supported by Utrecht University Library Open Access Journals, have been triggered for open access by the CLOCKSS Board of Directors.

The trigger of BoneKEy Reports occurred after IBMS suspended its operations in late 2016 and the content would no longer be available online. The trigger of Tijdschrift voor tijdschrift¬studies occurred after it ceased publishing and was no longer available online. The publications have been preserved in the CLOCKSS Archive and are available to the public for free via a Creative Commons license. See http://www.clockss.org/clockss/Triggered_Content.

About the International Bone and Mineral Society: IBMS has been privileged to collaborate with leadership of the world’s musculoskeletal research societies.

CLOCKSS Announces the Support of Additional Publishers and Libraries

December 19, 2016

CLOCKSS today announced that twelve additional publishers are working with the archive to preserve their publications for future generations of researchers.

CLOCKSS, the decentralized preservation archive that ensures that the digital assets of the community will survive intact, simultaneously announced the support of two additional libraries.

"We are very happy to be included in the CLOCKSS archiving repository,” said Lenny Teytelman Co-Founder of protocols.io.“ As Vint Cerf has been arguing, there is a high danger of loss of information, as society increasingly moves to digital records and publishing. This problem is particularly acute in research publishing where persistence is critical for trust in and reproducibility of research. Of course, the solution is not to regress and archive everything on paper. The solution is to come up with ways of ensuring the long-term preservation of research information. This is why it is very important to our company and to the scientists sharing on protocols.io, that their knowledge is backed up and preserved long into the future."

Katherine Swart, Collection Development Librarian, Calvin College said, “We were looking to diversify our preservation approaches and CLOCKSS appealed to us because it is a sustainable nonprofit venture. Participating in CLOCKSS allows us to support the larger research community in preserving knowledge.”

New Publishers include:

  • American Institute of Mathematical Sciences
  • Canadian Journal of Public Health
  • Chicago-Kent College of Law
  • CourseSource
  • European Cells and Materials
  • Hellenic Psychiatric Association
  • Open Library of Humanities
  • protocols.io
  • Stockholm University Press
  • Tuwhera, Auckland University of Technology
  • University of Westminster Press
  • Utrecht University Library Open Access Journals

New Libraries include:

  • Calvin College
  • Gonzaga University

These new publishers and libraries join over 200 publishers and over 700 libraries in participating with CLOCKSS.

CLOCKSS Archive certified as Trusted Digital Repository; Garners top score in Technologies

July 28, 2014

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) announced the completion of an eight-month audit of the CLOCKSS Archive and has certified the CLOCKSS Archive as a trustworthy digital repository. CLOCKSS is the only organization to earn a perfect score of 5 in the Technologies, Technical Infrastructure, and Security category. CLOCKSS also attained the highest score received by any organization that has undergone this independent audit.

A team of prestigious digital preservation experts conducted the audit with reference to generally accepted best practices in the management of digital systems; the interests of its community of research libraries; the practices and needs of scholarly researchers in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences in the United States and Canada; and ISO and National Archives and Records Administration standards. The purpose of the audit was to obtain assurance that CLOCKSS provides, and will likely continue to provide, services adequate to those needs without material flaws or defects and as described in CLOCKSS’s public disclosures.

“On behalf of the CLOCKSS board, I would like to thank CRL for its certification of the CLOCKSS service, and for thoughtful suggestions about how we can continue to develop and improve,” said Alicia Wise, Publisher Co-Chair of the CLOCKSS Board. “The 725 library supporters and 200 publisher partners in CLOCKSS already value the terrific team that delivers the CLOCKSS service, and this independent certification should inspire others committed to the long-term preservation of quality academic content to reach out and learn more.”

The certification is based upon a site visit and sampling of triggered archives content, and upon the review of information gathered by CRL and its Certification Advisory Panel and documents and documentation provided by CLOCKSS. CRL’s analysis was guided by the criteria included in the Trustworthy Repositories Audit and Certification checklist, and other metrics developed by CRL on the basis of its analyses of digital repositories.

"CRL’s review found the CLOCKSS approach, with its simple and flexible technical architecture, to be particularly well suited to the rapidly evolving landscape of e-journal publishing and scholarly practice” said Bernard Reilly, President of CRL.

“The CLOCKSS Archives is very pleased with the results of the audit, especially the highest score in the Technology category. Our partnership with the LOCKSS team at Stanford has afforded us a robust platform from which to deliver our preservation activities,” states Randy S. Kiefer, Executive Director of the CLOCKSS Archive.

This follows an announcement earlier this year that Victoria Reich and David S. H. Rosenthal, the co-founders of the LOCKSS technology, have been named the winners of the 2014 LITA/Library Hi Tech Award for Outstanding Communication in Library and Information Technology. The CLOCKSS Archive is a private LOCKSS network.

"The Stanford University Library's LOCKSS Program is extremely pleased that CRL’s rigorous examination provides reassurance to the publisher community, to the library community, and to the greater academic community that the LOCKSS technology is of the highest quality for long-term preservation and continuing access” said Vicky Reich, Executive Director of LOCKSS.
