Digital Preservation Policy

Digital preservation is seen as the set of processes and activities that ensure information which now exists in digital formats is backed up and distributed to guarantee continued access for the long term. The digital content of the journal is extremely valuable and measures are in place to ensure both its current accessibility and long-term preservation. 

 
As a journal in scholarly research,  JCM recognises the role as custodian of scholarly content, and is committed to the preservation of the scholarship in its research for generations to come. The preservation policy includes the following measures:
 
Website Archiving
All of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored on two sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same content is kept as a backup as another source. In case of failure of one server, another source can be made online and website expected to be accessible within less than 48 hours.
 
For the purposes of record-keeping, JCM retains copies of submitted manuscripts and supporting files. However, for articles that are rejected we will comply with requests from authors to delete files.
