Digital Preservation for Scholarly Communications

Long term access to digital materials is not simply a matter of depositing them into a repository. Ensuring that they remain discoverable, comprehensible and accessible requires careful planning, which is an essential part of a good data management plan. This session will give a brief introduction to the topic of digital preservation, covering the risks to digital materials, how they can be addressed, and the relevance to scholarly communications.

Intended Audience: Researchers and anyone interested in the persistence of scholarly outputs.
