Digital Preservation Policy

Facing the current needs of conservation of written and digital scientific production, the ENERGEIA Magazine, as well as the Ibero-American Society of Economic Methodology, are developing a digital repository, which has the purpose of storing, managing, disseminating and preserve all digital documents of scientific production that are published.

Both organizations assume the commitment to create the strategies, mechanisms and conditions that are necessary to achieve the objective of preservation, management and dissemination of all published scientific production, together with the updating of the digital formats that are most appropriate to achieve such objectives.


Purpose and Frame of Reference

This preservation policy seeks the generation of preservation strategies and open access to all the scientific production published in ENERGEIA, this includes the structure of its collections, the format of the deposited file and the metadata associated with each of them.

Derived from the main objective, the Repository of the Journal of Local Public Economy  will seek to comply with the standards proposed in the  NDSA Digital Preservation Levels  (for its acronym in English) as well as by The International Council on Archives (ICA) and The International Research on Permanent Authentic Records in Electronic Systems ( ICA-ITERPARES ), which serve as a guide on the specific criteria and actions for optimal protection of information.


Document management  

The ENERGEIA Repository is being developed based on the Greenstone 3.10 platform for the management, as well as, for the maintenance of its digital documents, software compatible with the OAI-PHM interoperability protocol ( Open Archive Initiative-Protocol for Metadata Harvesting ). .


Documentary Description

All digital documents deposited in the repository will be described under national and international schemes and standards, with the aim of enabling the  interoperability with other systems. The documents are described under the metadata standard  Dublin Core , compatible with the OAI-PMH protocol,


Format and Conversion of Deposited Files

The ENERGEIA Repository seeks constant updating to more stable and more accessible formats, which is why the conversion to EPUB, XML and RTF extension files is intended in order for the community to have greater access and greater scientific production. diffusion.  


Open and Continuous Access

The ENERGEIA Repository will generate the necessary monitoring mechanisms to verify the format versions as well as their respective updates to guarantee the accessibility of the files.
