Digital Archiving and Preservation Policy


Digital preservation can be seen as the set of processes and activities that ensure information, which now exists in digital formats, is backed up and distributed to guarantee continued access for the long term. International Journal of Business and Management (IJBM) digital archiving and preservation policy includes the following measures:

Digital Repositories and Libraries

All journal issues are deposited to National Library of New Zealand. The copies of the articles are available to the scientific community through their system as an alternative to the journals own.

Abstracting/Indexing services

All journal issues are abstracted and indexed by several abstracting and indexing services, which store many essential information about the articles. All published papers get individual DOI. 


The International Journal of Business and Management (IJBM) allows authors to deposit author's published final version/PDF in an institutional repository and non-commercial subject-based repositories, or to publish it on author's personal website and departmental website (including social networking sites, such as ResearchGate,, etc.), at any time after publication in the journal in compliance with the Creative Commons Attribution – NonCommercial – NoDerrivatives 4.0 ( 

If journal stops publishing

International Journal of Business and Management (IJBM) is connected to PKP Preservation Network. PKP has developed the PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN) to digitally preserve OJS journals. We intend and expect to continue to publish our journal for a very long time. If, due to some unfortunate circumstances, we are forced to stop publishing the journal, the manuscripts published in the journal will be kept online and accessible to the reader from the PKP Preservation Network archives.
