CLOCKSS today announced that five 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 six additional libraries.

“Clinical and Investigative Medicine (CIM) is the only Canadian journal devoted to the breadth of clinical and translational research and clinician scientist careers. Since 1978 CIM has been the ‘voice’ of the Canadian Society of Clinical Investigation (CSCI) and listed in PubMed, MEDLINE/Index Medicus and by the National Library of Medicine over this same period. We are proud to continue this strong scholarly tradition with help from CLOCKSS Archiving” said Robert Bortolussi CIM Editor in Chief. “We are pleased to support the CLOCKSS Archive and to ensure that scholarly content will always remain available to the scientific community independently of the publisher. In mathematical research, availability of scientific content also from past times is essential because of the strictly logical hierarchy of results in mathematics” said Prof. Dr. Gerhard Huisken, Director of the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach.

New Publishers include: • American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO®) • Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation • Carl Grossmann Publishers • McMaster University Library Press • New Zealand Medical Association

New Libraries include:

  • Foro Italico University of Rome
  • Indian Institutes of Management Bangalore
  • Indian Institutes of Management Indore
  • Indian Institutes of Management Lucknow
  • Indian Institutes of Management Udaipur
  • Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach.

CLOCKSS is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s leading academic publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, international, and 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.

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

The University of Edinburgh is participating in CLOCKSS with three distinct roles.
