Ascarya Journal of Islamic Science, Culture & Social Studies is committed to the permanent availability and preservation of scholarly research and to ensure accessibility by converting and upgrading digital file formats to comply with new technology standards. We work in partnership with different organizations as well as maintaining our own digital archive. Ascarya Journal of Islamic Science, Culture & Social Studies publications are deposited in and available from multiple digital archives around the world. To guarantee long-term digital preservation, content published in Ascarya Journal of Islamic Science, Culture & Social Studies are deposited in the CLOCKSS archives. CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) employs a unique approach to archiving (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) that was initiated by Stanford University librarians in 1999. Digital content is stored in the CLOCKSS archive with no user access unless a “trigger” event occurs. CLOCKSS is Non-for-profit dark archive which stores all publishing content. If content is no longer available from any participating publisher then CLOCKSS is able to make this available as open access.
