A quick post to state that Orbit is now preserved by the CLOCKSS archive. For more on this, see the press release, which even features a quotation from me!
The founding editor of Orbit, Martin Paul Eve, speaking on behalf of the editorial board, said: “Digital preservation is a key issue as we enter a new phase of scholarly publishing. Particularly as we adapt to open access and the tectonic shifts that come with this, including a new wave of independent scholar-publisher journals such as Orbit, it is important that those running these enterprises understand and use the impressive technological mechanisms that can safeguard their work. I am extremely pleased that we now have the opportunity to preserve the content of our journal of literary criticism with CLOCKSS.”
