Advanced Preservation Analysis

  • David GiarettaEmail author


So far we have used the OAIS terminology for digital preservation . Now we turn to a complementary way of looking at it. We can say that the challenge of digital preservation of scientific data lies in the need to preserve not only the dataset itself but also the ability it has to deliver knowledge to a future user community. This entails allowing future users to reanalyze the data within new contexts. Thus, in order to carry out meaningful preservation we need to ensure that future users are equipped with the necessary information to re-use the data.
