Digital archiving policy for The Asian Bulletin of Online Education And E-Learning (ABOEEL):
ABOEEL committed to the long-term preservation of its digital archives. This policy outlines the steps that ABOEEL will take to ensure the preservation of its digital content. ABOEEL allows and encourages authors to deposit both their pre- and post-prints in Open-Access institutional archives or repositories. All authors hold full copyright and self-archiving rights. Authors are allowed to archive their articles in open-access repositories as “post-prints”. In order to digitally preserve all published scholarly content, the ABOEEL commits to regularly submit the metadata of all its journals to the PKP Preservation Network (PN). This is to ensure that the published content by ABOEEL Publishing remains available to the community despite any accidental loss of data in its personal archival records. ABOEEL Publishing has further ensured that the metadata of its open access journal is compliant with well-known repository services, and their digital crawlers may regularly collect it for record and preservation.
