    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;In the September 2020 preprint &amp;ldquo;Open is not forever&amp;rdquo;, (Laakso et al.) discuss the high number of Open Access journals that&amp;nbsp;disappear from the web. It is a known problem in the digital preservation world that long-tail journals are especially at-risk of&amp;nbsp;disappearing. Five leading parties are now collaborating to address this problem: the Directory of Open Access Journals&amp;nbsp;(DOAJ), CLOCKSS, Internet Archive, the Public Knowledge Project Preservation Network (PKP PN), and International ISSN /&amp;nbsp;Keepers Registry. Building from the existing DOAJ infrastructure, we are establishing a central hub where preservation&amp;nbsp;agencies can harvest consistent metadata, and access full-text. Each of the preservation partners offers somewhat different&amp;nbsp;solutions for publishers to preserve their content. The project will offer free and low-cost options for preservation and access. In the first phase, the target is&amp;nbsp;diamond OA journals (those with no author processing charges), because these are the journals that are least likely to&amp;nbsp;participate in a preservation service and hence are most at-risk of disappearing. The project is currently coordinating technical designs, service development, infrastructure, and sustainability planning.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
