Journal title nomination form
It is important that the UK LOCKSS Alliance Support Service learns of at-risk journal titles, or titles that are particularly important to your institution. To nominate a title for inclusion in LOCKSS, please complete the form below.
Following nomination, the UKLA Support Service will poll the UK membership to assess community support for this title; we require at least votes in favour to initiate negotiations with the publisher. It will be necessary to schedule negotiations according to available resources, however gathering information on priority titles will help us achieve this scheduling. The UKLA Support Service will circulate updates on nominated titles and negotiations.
