Archiving Policy

Archiving & Electronic Backup

JIFA (Journal of Islamic Finance and Accounting) has electronic backup and preservation of access to the content of its journals via PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN).

PKP has developed the PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN) to digitally preserve OJS journals. The LOCKSS program offers decentralized and distributed preservation, seamless perpetual access, and preservation of the authentic original version of the content. The PKP PN ensures that journals that are not part of any other digital preservation service (such as CLOCKSS or Portico) can be preserved for long-term access.

All articles published by JIFA have a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to provide guarantees to authors regarding long-term archiving. With the DOI, all articles in JIFA will not be affected by changes to the URL currently used. Moreover, this journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
