Community Involvement

Digital preservation of scholarly literature is a global need and responsibility requiring involvement, expertise, and cooperation of many individuals and organizations. We are deeply engaged with the digital preservation community to ensure we contribute to, share, and learn from the efforts of others.

  • RMAP

    The Data Conservancy, IEEE, and Portico are working together to design and prototype a data curation infrastructure that connects published research and associated data sets for the long-term benefit of researchers worldwide. This two-year project, which is supported by a $602,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, will result in the development of a service that will build, store, update, and retrieve the connections among publications and data, and preserve those connections over the long-term.
