[Objective] This paper aims to analyze the challenges for long term preservation of digital publications, and to promote the development of sustainable support mechanisms. [Methods] Based on a systematic literature analysis, the paper focuses on developing a framework of sustainability issues and tools. Building on previous analysis, it presents the trustworthy auditing and certification needs, standards, and processes, and summarizes cost models and investment models for digital preservation. [Results] This paper puts forth some specific suggestions concerning sustainable support mechanisms for long term preservation of digital publications. [Limitations] Only provide a brief overview of economic support models and related research. [Conclusions] The long term sustainability includes format sustainability, system sustainability, and service sustainability for digital preservation, and it covers the concepts of managerial, financial, and political sustainability in the domain of service sustainability. The paper provides a few recommendations for developing sustainable support mechanisms for digital preservation.
