CLOCKSS. CLOCKSS and CrossRef Collaboration Makes it Easier to Find Discontinued Journal Articles. CLOCKSS and CrossRef have implemented the means to track articles from discontinued journals using the CrossRef DOIs originally assigned to the articles. When a published journal or other content is no longer available from a publisher, an archive that stores that content experiences a “trigger event.” CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) experienced its first trigger events with the SAGE Publications' journals Auto/Biography and Graft and Oxford University Press' Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention. These events led to the discovery that CrossRef would need to accommodate multiple DOI resolution, as the affected titles were stored in multiple archives. [Full Announcement].
