Ensuring persistence on figshare


figshare and the CLOCKSS Archive have partnered to preserve figshare's publically available content in CLOCKSS's geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. This action provides for content to be freely available to everyone after a "trigger event" and ensures an author's work will be maximally accessible and useful over time.

CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not for profit joint venture between the world's leading scholarly publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.

CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer had this to say, "The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes figshare's data into the community's archive. By archiving with CLOCKSS, figshare has ensured that their data, which includes figures, datasets and video files will be available for a worldwide audience now and in the future. We are grateful, as figshare joins the CLOCKSS Archive, for its generous willingness to preserve its content in a way that secures them for the long-term good of scholars worldwide."

As always, feedback, comments, suggestions and ideas are welcomed at or via twitter, facebook or google+.

  • "... a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive ..." What is the point of putting CC-BY and CC0 data into a dark archive? Can we have CLOCKSS just make their FigShare archive open from day one?
