Digital Preservation

Digital preservation is the series of management policies and activities necessary to ensure the enduring usability, authenticity, discoverability, and accessibility of content over the very long-term. The key goals of digital preservation include:

Usability—the intellectual content of the item must remain usable via the delivery mechanism of current technology
Authenticity—the provenance of the content must be proven and the content an authentic replica of the original
Discoverability—the content must have logical bibliographic metadata so that it can be found by end users through time
Accessibility—the content must be available for use to the appropriate community

Secure Storage--We pay special attention to ensure that Journal files are secure while backing up and when stored on our servers.
