e‐journals have many advantages over print, including enhanced media types, actionable reference links, and sophisticated searching capabilities. However, for many institutional subscribers, e‐journals are not an acceptable replacement for print without the reassurance that E‐journal content is maintained in a sustainable archival form for guaranteed future retrieval. Domain‐neutral schemas for e‐journal content defined in XML provide an appropriate mechanism for capturing e‐journal content in a manner that is amenable to long‐term preservation and retrieval. We present the results of a study of this problem undertaken by the Harvard University Library as part of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s E‐journal Archiving Project. One tangible result of this project has been the development of an XML e‐journal article‐level archival interchange DTD.
