Long Time Preservation

Digital preservation seeks to ensure that research data can be discovered, accessed, used, and understood – now and in the future. This requires that we address technological change, changing user behavior and new requirements on the computer-aided processing of research data as well as evolving organisational frameworks (e.g. national and international research data infrastructures).

To meet these challenges, GESIS focuses on these topics with research informed by both social and information sciences questions and methods. This includes research on strategies to preserve the authenticity, integrity and interpretability of data, cost (planning) models, certification procedures, standards and their application (e.g. OAIS Reference Model, PAIMAS, PREMIS) as well as technological and organisational aspects of digital preservation.
