Open Journal Systems supports the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system to ensure a secure and permanent archive for the journal. LOCKSS is open source software developed at Stanford University Library that enables libraries to preserve selected web journals by regularly polling registered journal websites for newly published content and archiving it. Each archive is continually validated against other library caches, and if content is found to be corrupted or lost, the other caches or the journal is used to restore it.
The "Engineering" journal also utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries. The Editors permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
