IHSN: Principles and Good Practice for Preserving Data

The International Household Survey Network (IHSN) just released a new publication on “Principles and Good Practice for Preserving Data”. This document produced by the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social research (ICPSR) provides basic guidance for managers in statistical agencies who are responsible for preserving data using the principles and good practice defined by the digital preservation community. The guidance defines the rationale for preserving data and the principles and standards of good practice as applied to data preservation; documents the development of a digital preservation policy; and uses digital archive audit principles to suggest good practice for data.

The document is available at http://ihsn.org/home/index.php?q=focus/principles-and-good-practice-preserving-data
