Digital preservation policy

Digital preservation can be seen as a set of processes and activities that ensure that information that now exists in digital formats is backed up and distributed to ensure continued long-term access.

EPSIR is committed to the long-term preservation, restoration and recovery of its content and has therefore established a preservation policy for its digital archives that includes the following measures:


  • Backups

  • Conversion of formats to other more secure formats

  • Periodic checks of the integrity of the files to avoid their corruption

  • Monitoring of the technological environment to anticipate possible migrations of obsolete formats or software


The preservation policy includes the assignment of DOI to each article.

In this sense, our website is developed under Open Journal System (OJS) which is an open source software developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) that has the Portico or CLOCKSS service, through which the Red de Preservación PKP (PKP PN), works to digitally preserve OJS journals through the LOCKSS program in order to create permanent archives of the journal, aimed at preserving the original contents and their restoration if necessary, as well as enabling the way for these files to be distributed among libraries and digital repositories.
