AOSIS OpenJournals deposits its open access articles in multiple digital archives around the world to guarantee long-term digital preservation.
We also make article metadata available in compliance with Open Archives Initiative protocols, enabling automated 'harvesting' of our research articles for inclusion in any other digital archives. We support non-exclusive digital archiving of research articles by as many international archives as possible, to ensure the security and permanent accessibility of that research.
All content in AOSIS OpenJournals journals is archived on the individual websites, and is fully accessible to all current readers.
Technical Information (for developers)
AOSIS OpenJournals support OAI protocol version 2.x.
Metadata for all articles is available in Dublin Core format.
