Portico is pleased to announce that the American Oriental Society (AOS) has entered into an agreement with Portico to preserve its e-journal, Journal of the American Oriental Society. Through this agreement with Portico, AOS ensures that its e-journal will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students.
AOS is the oldest learned society in the United States devoted to a particular field of scholarship. The encouragement of basic research in the languages and literatures of Asia has always been central in its tradition. This tradition has come to include such subjects as philology, literary criticism, textual criticism, paleography, epigraphy, linguistics, biography, archaeology, and the history of the intellectual and imaginative aspects of Oriental civilizations, especially of philosophy, religion, folklore, and art.
Portico will be a mechanism to provide post-cancellation access to the title committed to the archive.
