Published articles of Utisgad Journal are deposited both in Turkish National Library, Silifke Chamber of Commerce and Industry servers and Utisgad Journal Archieve System in terms of long-term preservation of the articles. Digital preservation involves a series of processes and actions designed to ensure the long-term accessibility and dissemination of information currently available in digital formats. The preservation policy of Utisgad Journal comprises the following strategies:
- Website Archiving: All electronic content, including website content and manuscripts, is stored in different locations. The primary server hosts the content online and allows readers to access it. Simultaneously, a backup of the same content is preserved on other servers. In the event of a server failure, these alternative resources can be activated, and the website is expected to be available again within 2 hours.
- Abstracting/Indexing Services: The journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services retain crucial information about articles. Additionally, some of these services also archive metadata and electronic versions of the articles. This enables the scientific community to access copies of the articles through these systems as an alternative to traditional journals. All the articles published are also stored and shared as open access in Zotero, Academia and Google Scholar systems.
- Author Self-Archiving Policy: Authors are granted permission and encouraged to post their articles on personal and institutional websites following publication. However, they must include complete bibliographic details and a link to the original publication to ensure proper attribution.
