American Geophysical Union to Preserve E-Journals in Portico

Portico (www.portico.org) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to preserve 10 online journals. Through this agreement with Portico, AGU ensures that these journals will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students.

The American Geophysical Union, which was established in 1919 by the National Research Council, is a nonprofit organization 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.

As part of the agreement, AGU will make an annual financial contribution to Portico to support its preservation activities. AGU has also named Portico as a mechanism to fill post-cancellation access claims.

With the inclusion of AGU’s 10 online journals, 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 complete list of titles and participating publishers is available at www.portico.org.
