Digital Preservation Policy

Given the imperative need for preservation of digital archives today, the Journal of Local Public Economics in conjunction with the International Association of Local Public Economics AC (AIEPL AC) are developing a digital repository, which aims to store, manage, disseminate and preserve all digital documents of scientific production that are published.

The Journal of Public Economics (REPUL), as well as the International Association of Local Public Economics AC, assume the commitment to create the strategies, mechanisms and conditions that are necessary to achieve the objective of preservation, management, preservation and dissemination of all the published scientific production, together with the updating of the digital formats that are most appropriate to achieve these objectives.

Purpose and Framework

The present preservation policy seeks to generate preservation strategies and open access to all the scientific production published in REPUL, including 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 Journal of Local Public Economics Repository will seek to comply with the standards proposed in the NDSA Digital Preservation Levels (NDSA) 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 criteria and concrete actions for an optimal safeguarding of the information.

Document Management 

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

Document Description

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

Format and Conversion of Deposited Files

The Repository of the Journal of Local Public Economics seeks constant updating to more stable and more accessible formats, which is why it is intended to convert to EPUB, XML and RTF extension files so that the community has greater access and the scientific production is more widely disseminated.

Open and Continuous Access

The Journal of Local Public Economics Repository will generate the necessary monitoring mechanisms to verify that the versions of formats as well as their respective updates guarantee the accessibility of the files.
