The Philosophy Documentation Center to Preserve E-Journals in Portico

07.26.10

Portico (www.portico.org/digital-preservation/) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a preservation agreement with the Philosophy Documentation Center (PDC), a non-profit aggregator and distributor of scholarly resources in applied ethics, philosophy, religious studies, classics, and related disciplines.

PDC’s initial commitment will be to deposit 50 e-journals to the archive. Through this agreement with Portico, PDC ensures that these e-journals will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students.

As part of the agreement, PDC will make an annual contribution to Portico and has also named Portico as a mechanism to provide post-cancellation access to the titles committed to the archive.

With the inclusion of these 50 e-journals, over 11,900 e-journals, 43,000 e-books and 10 d-collections from 115 publishers on behalf of over 2,000 societies and associations have now been entrusted to the Portico archive. Further, nearly 15 million articles are currently preserved in Portico. For a complete list of Portico-related facts and figures, please visit Portico’s Archive Facts & Figures.
