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."
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is the
world's largest general scientific society and publisher of the
journal Science (www.sciencemag.org) as well as Science Translational
Medicine (www.sciencetranslationalmedicine.org) and Science Signaling
(www.sciencesignaling.org). AAAS was founded in 1848 and includes
nearly 250 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10
million individuals. Science has the largest paid circulation of any
peer-reviewed general science journal in the world, with an estimated
total readership of 1 million. The non-profit AAAS (www.aaas.org) is
open to all and fulfills its mission to "advance science and serve
society" through initiatives in science policy, international
programs, science education, public engagement, and more. For the
