Nonprofit electronic archiving service provider Portico announced that bepress entered into an agreement with Portico to preserve ejournals hosted on bepress Digital Commons publishing repositories.

The initial addition to Portico’s archives includes 19 journals published by 10 different university libraries and other academic organizations: AcademyHealth, Butler University, Grand Valley State University, Kennesaw State University, Pacific University, Purdue University, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Western Kentucky University, and the Global Summitry Project at the University of Toronto.
“We are pleased to be working with bepress, and to further extend our relationship with libraries through this partnership,” said Kate Wittenberg, managing director of Portico.
Founded by professors in 1999, bepress exists to serve academia. Bepress delivers scholarly communications and publishing services for academic institutions, empowering their communities to showcase and share their works.
