From International Research on Permanent Authentic Records in Electronic Systems (InterPARES) 2: Experiential, Interactive and Dynamic Records (p. 42):

“Further complicating the situation in the sciences is the fact that, because of the inherently experimental and probatory nature of scientific inquiry, scientists view their research data, outputs and findings as provisional and continuously subject to revision by themselves and/or by other scientists. At a very fundamental level, it appears that this sense of the inherent impermanence of scientific research permeates and may, in many cases, even undermine the importance or relevance that scientists place on the characteristics of fixed form and stable content, both of which are central to the concept of recordness in an archival context.”
