Digital Preservation Policy

Digital preservation can be seen as the set of processes and activities that ensure information which now exists in digital formats is backed up and distributed to guarantee continued access for the long term. The digital content of the journal is extremely valuable and measures are in place to ensure both its current accessibility and long-term preservation. The preservation policy includes the following measures:

Website Archiving

All of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored on three different sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same content is kept as a backup on two other sources. In case of failure of one server, any one of the other sources can be made online and website expected to be accessible within less than 24-36 hours.

Abstracting/Indexing Services

Our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services store many essential information about the articles. Additionally, two of our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services archive not only the metadata about the article, but the electronic versions of the articles, as well. Therefore, copies of the articles are available to the scientific community through their systems as an alternative to the journals own.

Self-Archiving

Authors may archive the final published version of their articles in personal or institutional repositories immediately after publication.

Public Knowledge Project Preservation Network (PKP PN)

IJEMR achieved is in PKP Preservation Network (PN). PKP has developed the PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN) to digitally preserve OJS journals. The LOCKSS program offers decentralized and distributed preservation, seamless perpetual access, and preservation of the authentic original version of the content. The PKP PN ensures that journals that are not part of the Global LOCKSS Network, which primarily preserves content from larger publishers and vendors, or an existing PLN, which preserve small numbers of OJS journals hosted by member libraries, can be preserved using the LOCKSS program. For additional details about the PKP PN, see the high level overview

Metadata and Full-Text XML Harvesting

The OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability used to harvest (or collect) the metadata descriptions and in our case also the full-text articles. Vandana Publications fully supports the OAI Metadata Harvesting Protocol 2.0. Metadata for all published articles is available in the Dublin Core format (oai-dc).
