Digital Archiving & Preservation Policies

The published content is always valuable and like other scholarly publishers, Discover STM Publishing Ltd ensures that the published content is preserved properly in a systematic way, even if a journal stops publishing or the publisher is out of business.

To ensure preservation, the publisher has made the following arrangements.

Routine website backups

We ensure at least one backup every 24 hours and a copy is stored on 3 different devices.

Archiving with Discovery Services

We provide the content regularly to various discovery services and some of them include xml and fulltext-pdf files too. These discovery services are mentioned on each journal's website under Abstracting and Indexing link.

Permanent Preservation

We made arrangements with PORTICO that all content is available in case a journal ceases to publish or the publisher is out of business. PORTICO activates perpetual access rights when needed.
