Title Towards the Preservation of the Scientific Memory
Abstract In this paper we consider the requirements for preserving the memory of science. This is becoming more challenging as data volumes and rates continue to increase. Further, to capture a full picture of the scientific memory we need to consider beyond the bit preservation challenge, to considering how to capture research in context, representing the meaning of the data, and how to interpret data in relation to other scientific artefacts distributed in multiple information spaces. We review the progress of scientific research into digital preservation of science over the last decade, emphasising in particular the research and development programme of STFC. We conclude with a number of observations into the future directions of research and also the practical deployment of policy and infrastructure to effectively preserve the scientific memory.
