How far we plan to preserve: Do current Digital Preservation research suffices ?

Abstract : Purpose Digital content is a strategic asset that has observed an exponential growth in recent years. Like the physical universe, the digital universe is large. It is doubling in size every two years, and by 2020 the digital universe i.e. all the data we create and copy is tend reach 44 trillion gigabytes. Digital data is useful if it is suitably organized, tagged and preserved. So, to better understand current research trends in Digital Preservation and create awareness among scientists and policy makers the urgent need to explore more possibilities in preserving digital content, Bibliometric techniques are applied for quantitatively evaluating the related literature in Digital Preservation research. Methodology/ Approach Using data from the IEEE database between 2001 and 2015, a total of 139 publications were retrieved by searching keyword- “Digital Preservation”. The records were analysed for research trends in Digital Preservation. Conclusions/ Findings The preliminary results show that the yearly publications on Digital Preservation have increased exponentially, specifically peak in publications was observed in years 2010 and 2014. Other findings are related to patterns of International research collaboration, research interests, keyword frequency/subject interests to researchers, high impact articles etc. Novelty/Significance As observed by authors, this article signifies the vibrant growth of research in Digital Preservation. It is a priority research area that need to be explored more, as mankind in this modern world is dependent on digital technology. Also we believe there seems to be minimal work in Bibliometric mapping of publications related to Digital Preservation. Hence, this article can be considered as a fundamental work within this field of study.
