RCN Publishing has signed an agreement with Portico to preserve its e-journal content. Through the agreement, institutions participating in Portico’s E-Journal Preservation Service will be assured continued access to RCN Publishing title content for their nurses, students and academics for generations to come.

Rhonda Oliver, who is managing director of the publisher said, ‘RCN Publishing journals provide some of the most authoritative information and research on nursing that is available globally. By partnering with Portico, we are thrilled to be able to ensure that this content will always be accessible, for whoever may need it, whatever the future of publishing holds.’

RCN Publishing publishes 10 journals including Cancer Nursing Practice, Emergency Nurse, Learning Disability Practice, Mental Health Practice, Nursing Management, Nurse Researcher and Nursing Standard. In total, the journals comprise more than 18,000 articles, dating from 1996 onwards.

Oliver added, ‘The significant costs incurred in digital curation means very few publishers or libraries are able to provide their own perpetual archive of digital content. We trust that Portico will be able to provide access to our content in perpetuity, so that new generations will be able to draw upon the knowledge that has shaped the global nursing profession.’
