The sustainability, preservation, and long-term accessibility of research data is a growing concern for a number of academic institutions. Several centralized research data storage/hosting solutions are currently available to mitigate this issue, where research data archival and access is guaranteed by single centralized entities, often hosting research data for several academic institutions.In contrast, a truly decentralized solution offers the benefits of removing the need to rely on a small number of centralized entities to store and access these data: this brings about several benefits such as censorship resistance, immutability of the data, the removal of a single point of failure, and the removal of a “direct” need to maintain the actual infrastructure necessary for long-term storage and availability.In this context, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science explores the development of a prototype that would permit the storage of research data in a truly decentralized way.
