Abstract

Long-term archiving of scientific information is a well known challenge. We discuss the issue of preservation for journals and their enhanced versions. We use the Information Bulletin on Variable Stars as an example. This express journal, created to satisfy the need of researchers for rapid dissemination of discoveries and results has been developed to become an enhanced journal, with several data journal features. However, the original software developed for the enhanced web version of the journal is not sustainable for the long term. We discuss the possibilities for moving the journal to a standard open source platform, and the trade-offs of the process. Long-term preservation of content, including data, is addressed as well.
