November 28 News Release…..
Portico Archive Supports First Trigger Event
Graft: Organ and Cell Transplantation, published by SAGE Publications from January 2001 to March 2003, will be removed from SAGE’s online offering at the end of this year creating the first ever trigger event for the Portico archive and Portico’s participating publishers and libraries.
Because SAGE Publications, a leading international publisher of electronic media, journals and books, has ensured that Graft is preserved in the Portico archive and because Graft will not be offered by any other commercial online source, Portico will “light up” this portion of the Portico archive and provide access to literature that otherwise would be lost to the scholarly community. Through this first trigger event Portico demonstrates how publishers, archives, and libraries can cooperatively provide a permanent archive of scholarly literature published in electronic form and avoid a permanent gap in the scholarly record.
On December 3, 2007, Portico will make Graft available to its library participants via the Portico website and access via SAGE will end December 31, 2007. In the coming days, Portico will forward to its library participants instructions for accessing Graft. In the meantime, if you would like more information about Portico, or would like to discuss your institution’s participation in Portico, please contact us at email@example.com.

The Details have been released today……
This is not the complete backfile ……please read on……
As a participant in the Portico archive, your institution may now access Graft: Organ and Cell Transplantation, published by SAGE Publications from January 2001 to March 2003 via Portico. As recently announced, Graft will be removed from SAGE’s online offering at the end of this year creating the first ever trigger event for the Portico archive and participating publishers and libraries. (The full announcement is available at http://www.portico.org/news/112807.html.)
As of today, Portico has made Volumes 4 through 6 of Graft available to our library participants. (Please note that Volumes 1-3 of Graft were published by Landes Bioscience, and we are attempting to contact this former publisher about archival arrangements for these earliest issues.) Graft issues will be accessible to your students, faculty and staff through a new “Access Archive” link on the Portico homepage (www.portico.org) through which users will be able to browse, print and search all triggered content. Beginning January 1, 2008, these Graft volumes will no longer be available via the SAGE website, and libraries wishing to redirect link resolvers should note the Stable URL below. Portico will be taking responsibility for the Graft DOIs in December, and DOI links will continue to work and will be directed to the content at Portico. We are also working with the holdings data vendors and linking services to include information about Graft at Portico in the coming weeks.
We have summarized below key facts about the content in Graft that will be triggered and available to participating libraries via the Portico archive:
Especially because this is the community’s first trigger event experience, we welcome any comments, questions or concerns you might have about this event. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your input.
