Thieme Publishing Group has joined CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe). This community-governed, non-profit joint venture between scholarly publishers and research libraries aims to guarantee the permanent survival of  academic digital content.

'Archiving and securing the permanent availability of e-journals is of paramount importance. We at Thieme are pleased to participate in and support this initiative, while working in conjunction with the international publishing community,' commented Thomas Connertz, director Thieme eJournals.

The CLOCKSS archive, which builds on work by Stanford University librarians over the past 10 years, is distributed across a global and geopolitically diverse network of archive nodes, and governed by all its participants. Content no longer available from any publisher ("triggered content") is made available for free. In the case that any content from Thieme becomes triggered, CLOCKSS will release it to the world under a creative commons licence to ensure it remains available forever.
