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.
