Emerald to preserve e-journals with Portico
"Emerald Group Publishing has announced its recent agreement with Portico. Portico provides a service to permanently preserve scholarly research in electronic form so that this information will remain accessible to scholars in future years. Portico will receive Emerald content via an electronic data feed, which they will convert to a standardized archival format. They will maintain and operate the archive on behalf of Emerald. Each new publication will be added as and when published, with a view to archiving back issues in the future. This development will provide Emerald with security in the event of potential loss and will provide Portico's participating libraries with content if an incident occurs that causes the material to be inaccessible from Emerald"
