Scholars Portal sponsored Artefactual Systems Inc. to develop the ability for the preservation processing tool Archivematica to receive packages from connected Dataverse instances. The integration was released as part of Archivematica 1.8 in 2018. The sandbox has been updated to Archivematica v. 1.10.1.

You can read more about the project at the Dataverse-Archivematica wiki page as well as in Meghan Goodchild and Grant Hurley's 2019 iPres paper and presentation slides here:

There are a handful of documented issues with the integration available in the Archivematica issues repository in GitHub. You can also read more on the Dataverse-Archivematica wiki page.  These impact especially the treatment of tabular derivative files and how they are represented in the AIP's METS file.

Please note that individuals at institutions that are members of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) can access the sandbox as-is with the credentials below. If you are from an institution outside of OCUL, please fill out the request form.
