Abstract: Scientific databases are continuously updated either by adding new data or by deleting and/or modifying existing data. It is fairly obvious that it is crucial to preserve historic versions of these databases so that researchers can access previous findings to verify results or compare old data against new data and new theories. In this poster we will present XMLArch that is used in archiving scientific data stored in relational or XML databases. XMLArch builds upon and extends previous archiving techniques for hierarchical scientific data.
