1 Digital preservation
Alicante Journal of English Studies / Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses uses the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) 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. The journal’s LOOKSS publisher page is available at: https://raei.ua.es/gateway/lockss
In addition to usual procedures for creating multiple and versioned backup copies, the contents of the journal are replicated in the University of Alicante institutional repository (RUA), based on DSpace.
2 Interoperability protocols
The journal implements the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) protocol, a tool for metadata harvesting from repositories. This can be verified at: https://raei.ua.es/oai
