Archiving Policy

Journal of Management and Tourism Research (JMTR) recognizes the valid concerns of authors, readers, librarians and others regarding the need for long-term preservation and access to scholarly research as publishing moves into the online era. Our policy addresses this question of archiving directly and honestly.

In addition to affirming our position regarding archiving, the policy we have developed responds to library concerns about the print era concept of ‘subscription’ meaning ownership being replaced in the online era by the meaning access for a defined period of time. The policy recognizes the impractical challenge to a publisher to retain records of who subscribed to which volumes of a journal for all time, and permits libraries to acquire their own electronic collection of page images of JMTR journals.
