AAAS and the Science family of journals team up with CLOCKSS to safeguard access to content

(6 February 2015) The CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) Archive has partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to safeguard access to content in the Science family of journals, published by AAAS, in the event of an unforeseen “trigger event” such as a natural disaster.

Under the agreement, AAAS/Science content will be preserved in CLOCKSS ejournals and ebooks, across a geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. In the unlikely event of an earthquake or other unforeseen scenario that might otherwise limit access to AAAS/Science content, it will remain protected and available, via the CLOCKSS network.
