After yesterday’s talk by Ken DiFiore, I was intrigued to receive this press release from Portico. Here is an excerpt from it:
Portico, a digital preservation service for the scholarly community, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Walter de Gruyter to preserve 61 titles from its online journal collection.
Through this agreement with Portico, Walter de Gruyter ensures that the online version of these journals will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers and students. Walter de Gruyter has named Portico as a mechanism to fill post-cancellation access claims and has also agreed to make an annual financial contribution to Portico.
With the inclusion of these Walter de Gruyter journals, over 7,900 e-journals and 4,400 e-books have now been entrusted to the Portico archive. The complete list of e-journals and a list of participating publishers are on the Portico site.
