From the Preface:
This study was conducted as basis for all further steps towards a national hosting strategy. It was financed jointly by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Helmholtz Association, the Leibniz Association and the Max Planck Society. The study is intended to be the starting point from which to arrive at concrete ideas and activities related to a coordinated national hosting strategy. The intensive, often controversial but always constructive and continuing discussion now expands out of the working group into the public area to be continued there in the same manner. Invited for further discussion are all stakeholders with responsibility in the German science system to establish and finance sustainable structures for perpetual access as well as long-term preservation for electronic resources.
