Archiving Policy:

All articles published with SHERM are digitally backed up using Internet Archive, a non-profit library that catalogues and compiles millions of free books, journal articles, movies, software, music, websites, and more.

Likewise, every article in SHERM is backed up using EBSCO's "Academic Search Ultimate," as well as other social media platforms, such as Academia.

SHERM journal participates in Crossmark, a multi-publisher initiative from Crossref to help readers locate the current version of an article, which means SHERM is committed to maintaining up-to-date and accurate information on its publications. By clicking on the "Crossmark" button next to each article, readers will be alerted to significant changes to the article, as well as view the article's metadata related to version number, corrections, retractions, withdrawals, and any other updates deemed necessary by the author and/or SHERM editors. Clicking on the Crossmark logo (as displayed on the right) will inform readers of the article's current status and may also provide additional metadata about the article.

SHERM will only make updates to the Crossmark metadata will only occur if the changes are significant enough to affect the interpretation and citation of the article. Updates will not occur for minor changes involving spelling corrections, typesetting, etc.

Concerning retractions and withdrawals, SHERM journal adheres to the "Retraction Guidelines" as established by the Committee on Publication Ethics.
