The role of journal publishers in the field of research and development is not only content production and dissemination but also the preservation / archiving of its contents.
Archiving is becoming a core function of journal publishers, particularly those producing online-only open access content. The advent of digital publishing made journal articles more accessible than ever before, but it also made them somewhat less permanent. It’s up to publishers and authors to take steps to back up digital content to ensure that research outputs will remain available in the long term. And, with added discovery benefits, archiving can even help expand the journal’s Impacts.
Since archiving is considered a core function of journal publishers even the publishing standards organization the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) insists on archiving in their publisher guidelines.
