Rhode Island Medical Society to Preserve e-journals with Portico

12.30.16

Rhode Island Medical Society (RIMS) will preserve e-journals with Portico, ensuring that they will be secure and available into the future.

Founded in 1812, RIMS is the eighth oldest organization of its kind in the nation. It’s a voluntary association of physicians, physician assistants and medical students that supports and advocates for all Rhode Island physicians in their efforts to provide the best possible care to their patients. RIMS represents the interests, values, and needs of the medical profession and promotes enlightened public policy in the field of health care. Since 1917, RIMS has published the monthly Rhode Island Medical Journal, which transformed into an electronic-only publication in 2013.

The Rhode Island Medical Journal, a century-old staple in the Rhode Island medical community, enrolled in the Portico Repository to assure that the Journal is available in perpetuity for future generations. We selected Portico, after contacting several other similar preservation companies, because of their responsiveness and professionalism in working with us to ensure each issue was submitted with the correct formatting and tagging for preservation, and in completing all the necessary documentation to meet a required deadline for participation in PubMed indexing. I recommend them unequivocally.”—Mary Korr, Managing Editor
