The CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) Archive is pleased to announce that it
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.

"I'm pleased to future-proof our content by archiving with CLOCKSS,"
said Kent Anderson, Publisher at AAAS/Science. "CLOCKSS will help to
preserve the important part of the scientific record that the Science
family of journals has documented."

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer added: "By archiving with
CLOCKSS, the American Association for the Advancement of 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."
