Your citable, living document. Anywhere and forever.
Do you have a document that you want to:
- Preserve for the very long term?
- Always be able to update?
- Be available on multiple websites?
- Offer in both webpage and PDF formats?
- Be citable?
- Contain math?
A perm.pub URL contains a Document Succession Identifier (DSI) that uniquely identifies your document for references. For example:
J. Doe (2000-01-23) "My Document"
Editions of your document are separately referenced by adding an edition number to the
Document Succession Identifier (DSI).
/1 identifies a 1st edition:
When you publish a Baseprint document succession, you control the public succession of your document editions.
With compatible open-source software, any website and device can render a Baseprint document succession as PDF files and webpages that adapt to different screen widths. A DSI is calculated from a document succession stored anywhere, and perm.pub is not needed to generate a DSI.
Data records of your Baseprint document succession are replicated across multiple repositories, such as GitHub and the Software Heritage Archive, for long-term preservation. These preserved data records, not perm.pub, give you control of the succession to the latest edition of your Baseprint document.
