Digital Preservation Policy

This journal uses the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among partner libraries, allowing them to create permanent archives of the journal for preservation and restoration purposes. More...

Extracta Mathematicae has the purpose of preserving digitally in the long term all the documents it houses. To do this, we are developing an action plan that includes basic measures to ensure the digital durability of scientific material:

  • Backups and storage of documentation on servers and external storage units

  • Converting formats to more secure ones

  • Periodic checks of the integrity of files to avoid corruption

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

  • Digital preservation metadata

  • Use of DOI in our new materials

For the purpose of digital preservation, E.M. stores all the documents in easily readable formats (such as PDF). In the event that it would not be possible to maintain the usability of all existing formats, the journal ensures the return of the files to their authors. The digital preservation policy will be reviewed annually by the magazine.
