Digital Preservation Policy
Agrociencia Uruguay has a digital preservation policy to back up its collection every 6 months through Portico.
Backups are made at the metadata and file level of the articles.
Portico ensures 4 preservation factors:
1- Usability: ensuring access to information regardless of technological changes.
2- Authenticity: copies are made on the originals and these remain unchanged.
3- Discoverability: the metadata provided by the articles must be retrievable over time
4- Accessibility: the stored contents must be usable.
