The OAIS Model

Many data archives follow the Open Archival Information System Model (OAIS) as a conceptual framework. As the model’s structure is generic and does not provide any direct guiding for its implementation, it can be used by various sorts of repositories or data archives. The primary aim of the model is to provide a broad understanding of actions necessary for the long-term preservation and accessibility of data.
