Archival Policy


It is our mission to disseminate the intellectual work of our authors and editors to a maximum number of readers, now and in the future. In order to do so, we distribute our publications worldwide, both in printed and in electronic form, and keep them available for long periods of time.

All books currently in print will stay available in the future with the exception of titles that are replaced by new editions. In 2008, we have digitized our entire journal archive going back to volume one of each title making the complete history of all journals accessible online and available in print.

With a view to preservation for the future, we store our printed publications in various national archives. Our electronic publications (books and journals) are archived in the E-Depot of the Dutch National Library and Portico (USA).
