Archiving Policy


The "Corpus Journal of Social Sciences & Management Review" (CJSSMR) recognizes the importance of long-term preservation and accessibility of scholarly research. This Archiving Policy outlines the steps taken by the journal to ensure that published articles are available for future generations of researchers and readers.

Archiving Format

  • All published articles are archived in PDF format, which is a widely recognized and stable format for electronic documents.
  • The PDF files are tagged with metadata, including author information, article title, keywords, and publication date. This metadata makes it easier for researchers to find and access relevant articles.

 Archiving Locations

  • CJSSMR maintains its own digital archive of all published articles. This archive is backed up regularly to ensure redundancy and prevent data loss.
  • In addition, CJSSMR deposits its articles in several long-term digital repositories, including LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) and CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe). These repositories ensure that even if the journal ceases publication, the articles will still be available to readers.

 Access to Archived Articles

  • All published articles are freely available on the CJSSMR website.
  • Articles may also be available through other online research databases, depending on the subscription agreements of those databases.

 Long-Term Preservation

  • CJSSMR is committed to preserving its articles for as long as possible. The journal will continue to monitor and adapt its archiving practices as necessary to ensure that future generations of researchers have access to its content.

 Author Responsibilities

  • Authors are responsible for submitting the final, approved version of their article in PDF format.
  • Authors are encouraged to deposit their articles in institutional repositories in addition to the CJSSMR archive.
