Digital Preservation

Global Research & Development Services Publishing has partnered with PORTICO to preserve our journal content. Portico is a not-for-profit service committed to the long-term preservation of digital content, including e-journals, like ours.

PORTICO was launched in 2005 and based upon an earlier system set up by JSTOR in 2002 with a grant from the Andrew W Mellon Foundation. Source files are supplied by publishers and 'normalised' into a standard archival format (based on the open standard Journal Archiving and Interchange DTD) which can reliably be managed over the long term. In addition to merely archiving the content, PORTICO will actively curate it by transitioning the material from 1 file format to another as technology changes and as file formats become obsolete.
