Abstract: Introductory paragraph: This document sets out the minimum criteria of a digital archival repository that acts to preserve digital scholarly publications. It is based closely on the Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System and modified to reflect the specific needs of library, publishing, and academic communities. It also indicates some of the key research issues that are likely to emerge for those who establish digital archival repositories that meet these criteria. The research issues are divided into three categories: those associated with the deposit of data, those associated with preservation, and those associated with access.
