Digital Archiving And Preservation Policy

Digital preservation is a set of processes and activities that ensure the retrieval and distribution of information now available in digital formats to guarantee long-term, perpetual access. The preservation policy includes the following measures:

Website archiving
All of the electronic content (website, manuscript, etc.) is stored in three different sources. Content on a server is online and accessible to readers. A copy of the same content is preserved as a backup on two other sources. Should a server fail, other resources can be brought online, and the website is expected to be available in 24-36 hours.

Abstracting/Indexing services
Our journal's Abstracting/Indexing services store essential information about articles. In addition, some of our journals’ Abstracting/Indexing services archive metadata about the article and electronic versions of the articles.In this way, copies of articles are presented to the scientific community through these systems as an alternative to journals.

Cessation of publication
If a journal must stop publishing, the articles will remain online and accessible to readers through third parties and archiving processes such as those described above. Content can be accessed through PORTICO when required under certain circumstances, such as when the collection is stopped.
