Parse.insight - Insight into issues of Permanent Access to the Records of Science in Europe


The aim of the European project "Insight into issues of Permanent Access to the Records of Science in Europe" (Parse.Insight) was to investigate the current state of long time preservation in the area of scientific primary data and scientific publications. The results of this study should help to guideline the development of a European digital infrastructure to ensure accessibility and long term preservation of digital records of science. To this end the project created an inventory of the current long term preservation projects within the sciences, arts and humanities. This inventory was then compared with the individual needs of selected disciplines. This comparison pointed out the areas of additional need for support to build a networked long term preservation infrastructure for digital scientific primary data and publications.
