Project Jupyter, evolved from the IPython environment, provides a platform for interactive computing that is widely used today in research, education, journalism and industry. The core premise of the Jupyter architecture is to design tools around the experience of interactive computing, building an environment, protocol, file format and libraries optimized for the computational process when there is a human in the loop, in a live iteration with ideas and data assisted by the computer.

Well-documented data quality is critical in situations where scientists and decision-makers need to combine multiple datasets from different disciplines and instrumentation to address scientific questions or difficult decisions. Standardized data quality metadata could be very helpful in these situations. Many efforts at developing data quality standards falter because of the diversity of approaches to measuring and reporting data quality. The “one size fits all” paradigm does not generally work well in this situation.

It is common in discussing technical infrastructure to talk about the IT “stack”. This discussion walks through a model for the Digital Preservation Management stack with requisite layers of organizational infrastructure for sustainable digital preservation programs. The DPM stack applies concepts from the DPM model, an organizational maturity model that defines five stages to build a sustainable program. This is represented by a three-legged stool with an organizational, a technological, and a resources leg.
