At SADI Journals, we are committed to preserving and providing long-term access to the scholarly content published in our journals. Our Digital Archiving Policy outlines our strategies and practices for digital preservation, ensuring the integrity and availability of published research.

  1. Preservation Infrastructure: We employ a robust digital infrastructure consisting of secure servers, storage systems, and backup mechanisms to safeguard the digital content. Our infrastructure is designed to protect against data loss, hardware failures, and other potential risks.

  2. Trusted Archiving Platforms: We partner with reputable archiving platforms and repositories that specialize in digital preservation. These platforms adhere to industry standards and best practices, ensuring the reliability and durability of our archived content.

  3. Content Integrity: We prioritize the integrity of published content during the archiving process. This includes preserving the original format, layout, and functionality of articles, supplementary materials, and associated data. Our archiving methods maintain the fidelity of the content as it was originally published.

  4. Metadata Preservation: We ensure the preservation of comprehensive metadata associated with each article, including author information, abstracts, keywords, and publication dates. Preserving accurate metadata enables proper identification, discovery, and citation of the archived content.

  5. Persistent Identifiers: Every article published in SADI Journals is assigned a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). DOIs serve as persistent and permanent identifiers, ensuring the persistent link and discoverability of the content even if the website structure or URLs change over time.

  6. Format Migration: We monitor technological advancements and evolving digital preservation standards to adapt our archiving practices accordingly. If necessary, we employ format migration techniques to ensure the long-term accessibility of content as technology changes. Format migration helps in maintaining compatibility with future systems and platforms.

  7. Backup and Redundancy: We implement comprehensive backup strategies, including regular backups of the archived content and redundancy in storage systems. Multiple copies of the content are stored in geographically distributed locations to safeguard against data loss or system failures.

  8. Collaboration with Preservation Initiatives: We actively collaborate with preservation initiatives, organizations, and consortiums to stay informed about the latest advancements in digital preservation. These collaborations allow us to align our practices with industry standards and contribute to the broader preservation community.

  9. Monitoring and Assessment: We regularly monitor and assess the effectiveness of our digital archiving processes. This includes periodic integrity checks, system audits, and evaluation of the archiving infrastructure to ensure the continued preservation and accessibility of the content.

  10. Legal Compliance: We adhere to relevant legal and ethical requirements regarding digital archiving, copyright, and intellectual property rights. Our archiving practices respect the rights of authors and contributors while ensuring the long-term availability of the content.

By implementing a comprehensive Digital Archiving Policy, SADI Journals ensures the preservation, integrity, and accessibility of the scholarly content we publish. We are committed to providing a reliable and sustainable archival system that benefits researchers, scholars, and the wider academic community.
