We are very pleased to welcome the Public Knowledge Project Private LOCKSS Network (PKP PLN) as the latest archiving organisation to join the Keepers Registry.
The Public Knowledge Project is a multi-university initiative based at Simon Fraser University developing (free) open source software and conducting research to improve the quality and reach of scholarly publishing. One of the services it has developed is a Private LOCKSS Network to digitally preserve OJS journals. Currently in pilot phase with a small number of universities, once in full production mode the network will provide preservation services for any OJS journal that meets certain criteria.
Joining the Keepers Registry enables the PKP PLN to share information on the titles it is archiving, and brings the number of Keepers currently contributing to the Registry to eleven. We expect to start including metadata from the PKP PLN in the New Year.
For more information about the PKP PLN’s approach to archiving and contribution to the Keepers Registry see the Archiving Agencies section of the Keepers Registry. Find out more about the PKP and the PLN on their website: https://pkp.sfu.ca/pkp-lockss/.
