Inactivate a project Edited

We have a lot of short projects and want the ability to close a project when it's complete and want to have the history for our records. 

How should we achieve this requirement?

Create a new permission scheme that basically grants nothing to anyone, other than "browse" so people can still report on it.  Apply it to each project you wish to "close"

Building on @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] answer, you may want to restrict browse access to just a few users so everyone doesn't see it if they don't need it. If you are done with it remove everyone's access. The JIRA admin can restore access if it is ever needed.
