Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how extensively LOCKSS/CLOCKSS, Portico, and e-Depot provide long-term digital archiving for the journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Design/methodology/approach – The paper uses publicly available online data, which are processed in a set of PERL programs to measure the number of DOAJ articles in the three archiving systems. Findings – The findings show that only 8 per cent of the DOAJ titles are in LOCKSS/CLOCKSS and only 5 per cent in Portico. The findings also suggest that it could take eight years to archive all full text DOAJ articles in e-Depot based on current plans. Practical implications – The most important implication is that most open access titles listed in DOAJ currently have no effective long-term digital archiving. Originality/value – The paper investigates how extensively LOCKSS/CLOCKSS, Portico, and e-Depot provide long-term digital archiving for the journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
