Archiving Policy

To ensure permanent availability and accessibility, GAIA pursues various strategies:

... LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) and CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS): For long-term digital preservation, GAIA has been set up with LOCKSS and CLOCKSS.
... German National Library (DNB) mandatory deposits: The publishing house oekom is obliged to submit all online issues of GAIA to the DNB, which catalogues and archives online publications, guarantees their authenticity and ensures long-term preservation.
... GAIA digital archives: Furthermore, GAIA maintains its own digital archive and preserves all information on external computers and disks.
