Digital archive preservation policy

SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología develops several processes aimed at guaranteeing the permanent accessibility of the digital objects it hosts on its own servers:

- Back-up copies.
- Monitoring of the technological environment to anticipate possible migrations of obsolete formats or software.
- Digital preservation metadata.
- Use of DOI.

The files published on this website are available in easily reproducible formats (PDF, HTML, ePUB and  XML).

This journal is part of the Public Knowledge Project's Private LOCKSS Network (PKP-PLN), which generates a decentralised archiving system, distributed among collaborating libraries, in order to create permanent archives of the journal for the preservation of the original content and its restoration if necessary.

The LOCKSS Editorial Manifesto on digital preservation is available at the following link.

The digital preservation policy will be reviewed periodically by SHILAP.
