English abstract

Citation and reference in research now go well beyond the familiar locations of journals and other forms of publication. Web resources 'in the wild’ are increasingly cited, yet are far more subject to deletion or amendment, without notice, than published resources. This situation has not improved with the advent of Web 2.0 technologies. Just as we are concerned about the persistence of Web resources themselves, our concern should equally extend to achieving the effective management of research references on the Web. This paper highlights key issues in Web Preservation, and discusses a range of emerging solutions.
