Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishing Group has joined CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe), a community-governed, non-profit joint venture between the world's leading scholarly publishers and research libraries. These organizations are working together to guarantee the permanent survival of academic digital content beyond the twenty-first century. Additional participants in this continuously growing international project include Stanford University, the Royal Society, Elsevier, and the University of Hong Kong.

"Archiving and securing the permanent availability of eJournals is of paramount importance. We at Thieme are pleased to participate in and support this initiative, while working in conjunction with the international publishing community,” says Thomas Connertz, Director Thieme eJournals.

Ten years ago, Stanford University librarians developed the innovative LOCKSS technology, upon which this project is based. The CLOCKSS archive is distributed across a global and geopolitically diverse network of archive nodes, and governed by all its participants. Content no longer available from any publisher ("triggered content") is made available for free. In the case that any content from Thieme becomes triggered, CLOCKSS will release it to the world under a creative commons license to ensure it remains available forever.

By archiving with CLOCKSS, Thieme Publishing Group is ensuring that content from Thieme eJournals remains as useful as possible and will always be available, when needed, to all scholars around the world.


CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s leading scholarly publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, 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.
