D32.2 Report on testing of cost models and further analysis of cost parameters due M30 (June 2013)

Final Draft - updated from peer review and other o/s issues still to be updated

See attachment below


Revised DoW:

The results of the testing of models (with the limited data we have) will be included within this report. Where enough cost data is not available, further analysis of the mapping of cost parameters to the ISO on Trusted Repositories will identify areas for further investigation and development. A review of the results of the survey (included within WP36) related to cost models will also be provided as well as links to the new Coordination Action.


To include:

Completion of mapping exercise

  • include gaps analysis
From D32.1: Due to the status of the mapping work the results presented should be treated as preliminary findings until further review and the availability of a full analysis in the next deliverable. Gaps would be identified as a result of the COMPLETED mapping task which will be analysed further during the investigation and development phase of this work package.
  • include areas for further investigation and development
From D32.1: There are two levels of mapping: at sub-section level e.g. 3.1, 3.2 or at the level below this e.g. 3.1.1, 3.1.2. For this report we focussed on the mappings at the sub-section level, see Figure 3 for an extract of the standard. For each measure in the level below, the cost parameters will be reviewed further and the results will be provided in the next deliverable. Provide further analysis on similarities etc - see below Further analysis of mapping exercise
  • Detailed review where similarities e.g. are cost parameter definitions similar?
Testing of cost models
  • methodology or approach adopted
  • findings
  • conclusions, summary * next steps

Costs and benefits Per reviewer's comments

…project partners in this WP – whose title is “Cost/benefit data collection and modelling” – are missing sufficient attention to the benefits side. Of particular importance is specifically the relationship and ratio between costs and benefits. The latter are crucial to making good business cases for digital preservation. It is further recommended that the authors integrate their bibliography with further selected references to the literature of sustainability and economics in digital preservation

See, for example, Brian F. Lavoie, “The Fifth Blackbird: Some Thoughts on Economically Sustainable Digital Preservation,” D-Lib Magazine, March/April 2008, and keynotes of Seamus Ross at IPRES 2011 and UNESCO Memory of the World in the Digital Age 2012)

  • Desktop research on benefits (link with WP36 findings)
  • Relationship between costs and benefits
  • Cost models related to benefits

Links to 4C

  • obtain input to findings from 4C contacts
