BioMed Central to deposit e-journals with the British Library

The British Library has agreed to work with the BioMed Central Group to explore the issues surrounding the creation and sustainability of a permanent electronic holding within the UK's National Archive of Publications for all the research articles published in the BioMed Central (www.biomedcentral.com) family of journals. This deposit will take effect as soon as the necessary system architecture is in place at the Library.

Jan Velterop, Publisher of the BioMed Central Group, commented on this new development:

'This deposit into the UK's National Archive of Publications is consistent with BioMed Central's policy of securing accessibility and permanent archiving of its publications - it will add to the confidence of the scientific community that their online papers are preserved for posterity with the same degree of care as print.' This National Archive will be another way in which the information published in the BioMed Central journals can be made available in the long term. Currently, all the research articles published are archived, without delay, at the PubMed Central site (http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov) and are also indexed in PubMed.

In addition to the above online archiving solutions, BioMed Central will also be making archival print versions of the BioMed Central journals. These will be available on demand for libraries that require a hard copy of the BioMed Central research articles.

All these initiatives, combined with the policy of promoting self-archiving by authors, means that all research articles published on BioMed Central will be permanently accessible and searchable in multiple archives.
