What is an ARCHIVE?
Archive is History - stored safely and made available. And history is always important because:
- It is generally not easily available in times of need.
- It always remains relevant to some research or the other.
- For pan-global cross-referencing.
What does e-archiving do?
- Fast and easy access, sitting at home.
- Manages researcher's time and saves it.
- No preservation issues for libraries/institutes. No day-to-day hassles and no preservation costs. Their work load reduced.
- No “missing pages” or “torn copies” or “moth-eaten” journals.
IndianJournals.com is already running this concept - a novel one in India. The “7 Principles” we work around are:
- Mode of access - always convenient.
- Terms of access - defined and stable.
- Access period - designed to keep research "recent".
- Information - continuously added/updated.
- Technical architecture of archive - organised.
- Relationships defined - between e-Publisher, Society and User.
- Costs maintained - continue customer oriented.
