JSTOR e-archiving initiative


From the inception of JSTOR, we anticipated the need to preserve the “born-digital” editions of scholarly journals. In order to focus on the special preservation and access challenges that this content raises, we have created a new unit within JSTOR, known as the Electronic-Archiving Initiative, or “E-Archive” more informally. Within JSTOR, E-Archive’s mission is to develop the organizational and technical infrastructure needed to insure the long-term preservation of and access to electronic scholarly resources. As we begin, we are taking a system-wide perspective seeking to find an approach that meets the needs of scholars, librarians, and publishers. [JSTOR: JSTOR’s Electronic-Archiving Initiative]
