EDINA and the ISSN International Centre are pleased to announce the publication of Working Together to Ensure the Future of the Digital Scholarly Record.

This statement outlines the actions now required to tackle the evolving challenges of preserving and ensuring the long-term accessibility of digital scholarship. It was produced during and after the second Keepers Extra workshop, held in Paris on the 6th and 7th of June 2016. Addressing publishers, research libraries and national libraries, the statement sets out a series of recommended activities that they can undertake to support archiving and preservation initiatives. The Keepers network, the community of practitioners around the registry who are committed to acting as the stewards of digital content, will work to support and encourage the actions identified in this statement.
