ALPSP surveys digital preservation
The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) is conducting a survey amongst its publisher members in response to the growing concerns over long-term preservation of digital content.
In 2006, an important industry study concluded ‘much scholarly e-literature is not covered by archiving arrangements, and that while e-journal archiving programmes are becoming available, no comprehensive solution has emerged and large parts of e-literature go unprotected.’
The aims of this latest survey are to establish the nature and extent of long-term preservation strategies either in place or planned; and to enhance awareness of long-term digital preservation issues amongst members and in the wider scholarly community.
