Digital Preservation Policy
Digital preservation can be seen as the set of processes and activities that ensure
information which now exists in digital formats is backed up and distributed to
guarantee continued access for the long term. The digital content of the journal
is extremely valuable and measures are in place to ensure both its current accessibility
and long-term preservation. The preservation policy includes the following measures:
All of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored on three different
sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy
of the same content is kept as a backup on two other sources. In case of failure
of one server, any one of the other sources can be made online and website expected
to be accessible within less than 24-36 hours.
Our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services store many essential information about
the articles. Additionally, two of our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services archive
not only the metadata about the article, but the electronic versions of the articles,
as well. Therefore, copies of the articles are available to the scientific community
through their systems as an alternative to the journals own.
Authors may archive the final published version of their articles in personal or
institutional repositories immediately after publication.
