Our Policies as well as Preservation approaches are developed by considering the advices and guidance from the various communities like publishing communities and library communities.

In the recent years, we are experiencing the advancements in technology and this advanced technology is using by various sectors. Particularly, In education / publishing sectors, publishers / organizations / educational institutions are using wide variety of technologies for engaging their everyday activities. In this case, the data safety is an important factor to be considered. All the communities, for the data safety, will approach the preservative / archiving platforms. There may be some preservative / archiving platforms which will offer service for the data protection. But most of the platforms are not sector / industry specific. Because of this, publishing and library communities may not reach their expectations in data preservation.

By considering the needs and requirements of the publishing and library communities, RePoSiTo platform has been developed with the advanced technology.
