Archiving and Preservation

Digital Archive

JMA is committed to the continued use and preservation of scholarly research, ensuring accessibility by converting and updating digital file formats to meet the latest technical standards. We work with organizations to maintain our own digital archives.

Local Archive

JMA maintains state-of-the-art facilities in the region for storing complete and accurate digital versions of published articles. Current format standards are XML and .pdf. Most files are kept in both formats. Website Archives All of JMA`s electronic content (websites, manuscripts, etc.) is stored in three different sources. The content on our servers is online and accessible to our readers. Copies of the same content are kept as backups at the other two sources. In the event of a server failure, all other sources can be brought online and the website accessible


JMA supports self-archiving. The JMA allows and encourages authors to make their research visible and accessible by uploading the final published version of their submission to personal or institutional repositories immediately after publication.


JMA's abstracting/indexing service stores a lot of important information about articles. Additionally, the journal's two abstracting/indexing services archive not only metadata about articles, but also electronic versions of articles. Copies of articles on systems in the scientific community are therefore available as an alternative to proprietary journals.

All published articles are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) CrossRef. JMA deposit its publications in multiple digital archives around the world to ensure long-term digital preservation. All published articles are indexed by DOAJ, Google Scholar, and Index Copernicus. All articles are permanently archived and available in HTML and PDF formats. JMA makes article metadata available according to the protocols of the Open Archives Initiative, enabling the automated "harvesting" of research articles for inclusion in other digital archives. To ensure the security and permanent access of this research, we support non-proprietary digital archiving of research papers by as many international archives as possible.

JMA is a participant in the LOCKSS initiative (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe). LOCKSS enables any library to maintain its own archive of content from JMA and other publishers with minimal technical effort and inexpensive hardware.

If the Journal Stops Publishing

JMA intends and expects to continue publishing our journals for a long time to come. If, due to rare unfortunate circumstances, we are forced to cease publication of the journal, manuscripts published in the journal will be kept online for at least 10 years for readers. Content will be accessible through LOCKSS and CLOCKSS when required in specific circumstances, such as discontinuation of the collection or a catastrophic failure of the website.

The LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system provides secure and permanent archiving of journal content, while the CLOCKSS (Controlled Lot of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system provides secure and permanent archiving of journals.

In the Event of Notice of Possible Litigation

Received in full if any written claim or complaint, subpoena, or other formal request is made against existing MEV logs and records in the system agency's information technology (such as emails, written records, or audit trails) to substantiate or refute such claims. The Complaint Status Editor will immediately inform the Secretariat of the details of the complaint until the event cannot be destroyed, and will make targeted backups of the documents of the parties involved to guarantee secure access.

Information stored by the Secretariat or Publisher on a local computer (such as a C: drive) or other local medium (such as a CD or flash drive) should also be maintained and backed up in a secure location. on our institutional servers All paper documents must also be retained and presented in the event of a legal action or claim The Secretariat and the Editorial Department will not destroy any data when notifying a possible complaint Deliberate destruction of identified data is a serious crime and anyone who intentionally destroys identified data will be subject to disciplinary action.
