Trusted digital repositories provide durable archival services for the data entrusted to them and should adhere to good repository practices originating from the Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System (OAIS) and the Trusted Repository Audit Checklist (TRAC) and Trusted Digital Repository Checklists (TDR). Trusted software repositories should also support the FORCE11 software citation principles.
Key features of a trusted digital repository include but are not limited to: providing durable persistent URLs for digital artifacts, offsite backups and disaster recovery processes, curated archival packages in open and durable data formats, fixity checks to ensure digital artifact integrity, and an organizational commitment to continuing maintenance and curation of their archive.
This is not an exhaustive list and consists of DOI or other permanent identifier issuing repositories that we are aware of that embrace archival of software artifacts. If you have any comments or changes to make to this list, please feel free to contact us.
