Scenario A repository of scientific data originating from a major international facility is reconsidering its preservation policies. Many types of policy statement have been put forward and are being applied, but the question is: how do they motivate each other? How does a lower-level policy contribute to a higher-level one? A simple policy statement such as “All data files should be associated with an experiment” seems reasonable, but how is it derived from higher-level requirements? What policies are appropriate concerning the drequency of integrity checks? The policy construction service will assist with assembling a set of policies in a coherent way.
Implementations Ongoing work in SCAPE project on modelling levels of policies and their relationships
