Portico and American Geophysical Union sign archiving deal -

Non-profit electronic archiving service provider Portico, US, has announced an agreement with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to preserve 10 online journals. With this inclusion, over 10,700 e-journals and 34,000 e-books from 92 publishers on behalf of over 2,000 societies and associations have now been entrusted to the Portico archive.

The American Geophysical Union, which was established in 1919 by the National Research Council, is a nonprofit organisation that promotes the study of the geophysical sciences. AGU's publications, which are available in more than 135 countries and nearly 2,000 libraries, include peer-reviewed scientific journals, a member newspaper, and award-winning books.

Through this agreement with Portico, AGU seeks to ensure that the journals will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students. As part of the agreement, AGU will make an annual financial contribution to support Portico’s preservation activities. The organisation has also named Portico as a mechanism to fill post-cancellation access claims.
