Description

The purpose of this project, jointly conducted by EDINA and the ISSN International Centre, Paris, is to scope, build and test a pilot for an E-journals Preservation Registry Service [PEPRS] http://edina.ac.uk/projects/peprs/about.html. The overall aim is to provide librarians and policy makers with information on provision for continuing access to all scholarly work published in e-journals. The project will pilot an online facility that would let a range of stakeholders check the archival provision for e-journals and to identify the gaps in such provision. The project objectives for this network-level facility are to investigate, build and test an authoritative, low-cost and up-to-date reference source on the preservation status of e-journals.
