The PKP Preservation Network provides free preservation services for any OJS journal that meets the basic criteria. In this sense, with a view to their digital preservation, the articles of Research on Reading are archived in LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) , thus guaranteeing the journal a permanent and secure archive.


Open Journal Systems, which hosts Research on Reading, is compatible with the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system that guarantees the journal a permanent and secure archive. LOCKSS is an open source program developed by the Stanford University Library that enables libraries to curate selected web journals by regularly searching registered journals to collect newly published content and archive it. Each file is continually validated against records from other libraries, so any damaged or lost content can be restored using those records or the journal itself.

The archived numbers can be consulted in the LOCKSS Editorial Manifesto ( In this way, the articles are progressively archived, thus guaranteeing that the stored digital information can remain and continue to be used in the future.
