Digital Archiving and Preservation Policy

Pen Academic Publishing is committed to the long-term preservation of its content. All articles published by the journal are preserved by OAI (Open Archive Initiative). 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:

Website Archiving

All of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored on three two sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same content is kept as a backup on the 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.

Abstracting/Indexing Services

Our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services store many essential information about the articles. Additionally, one 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.

Self-archiving

Authors may archive the final published version of their articles in personal or institutional repositories immediately after publication.

If journal stops publishing

We intend and expect to continue to publish our journal for a very long time. If, due to some rare, unfortunate circumstances, we are forced to stop publishing the journal, the manuscripts published in the journal will be kept online and accessible to the readers for at least 10 more years. When required under specific conditions, such as discontinuation of the collection or catastrophic failure of the website, the content will be accessible through OAI.
