Digital preservation and archiving

Perpetual access presupposes that provision has been made for the long-term digital preservation of a journal. Many publishers handle the digital preservation and archiving of online journals through services such as JSTOR (22%), Portico (40%), Portico is a Mellon-funded electronic archiving service that includes policies and procedures for post-cancellation access to online journal content. See (External Link) . For a breakdown of digital archiving arrangements, see Cox and Cox (2008), 66. Stanford University’s LOCKSS (41%), LOCKSS provides ongoing online access in the event of a catastrophic loss of access, not a preservation and migration solution such as that provided by Portico. See (External Link) . and (especially in Europe) commercial firms that have made arrangements with national libraries. The Dutch Royal Library has been especially active in this regard. See (External Link) .

Whether a society can offer guarantees about the preservation of a journal’s online content will depend in part on the journal’s submission policy for digital formats. A conservative approach would be to limit digital submissions to specified formats for which preservation practices and protocols exist. This would allow the journal’s content to participate in existing digital preservation programs. A journal could still accept new, non-conforming digital formats; however, the society would not be able to guarantee the long-term preservation of such digital objects. A society’s online publishing partner will be able to help identify the digital formats that have existing preservation standards.

Author rights issues

When journals were published primarily in print, author rights received relatively little attention. In a networked environment, however, where an individual article can easily be posted and propagated online, the issue receives greater attention from both authors and publishers. For an overview of author rights issues, see Bailey (2008) and Morris (2009).

Author rights comprise a number of issues, with copyright retention and self-archiving rights foremost among them. For a society-sponsored journal, whose author base is often coextensive with the society’s membership, balancing author rights and publisher prerogatives is more than sound business practice: it is central to the society’s identity as a membership organization. It makes sense, therefore, for a society’s copyright and author rights policies to accommodate the needs of its members.


Increasingly, individual authors are asserting a right to self-archive a digital version of an article on their personal Web site, in a repository at their host institution, or in a subject-based repository. There are subject-based repositories in a number of disciplines. However, the largest and most active (for example, arXiv in high energy physics and RePEc in economics and mathematics) are those in fields where a tradition of exchanging print pre-prints was prevalent. Although self-archiving has been cited as a latent threat to journal subscriptions, See Beckett and Inger (2006). its effect on a journal’s revenue will often be limited to a marginal loss of pay-per-view revenue.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
