Journal of Research in Social Sciences (JRSS) utilizes the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries, and it permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. The full text of all articles published in JRSS are deposited in the  Public Knowledge Project's Private LOCKSS Network (PKP-PLN)  to guarantee long-term digital preservation.
