Andreas Weber and Claudia Piesche have published "Requirements on Long-Term Accessibility and Preservation of Research Results with Particular Regard to Their Provenance" in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information.
Here's an excerpt:
In this article we describe the considerations regarding the implementation of a local research data repository for the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 840. The main focus will be on the examination of requirements for, and an agenda of, a possible technical implementation. Requirements were derived from a more theoretical examination of similar projects and relevant literature, diverse discussions with researchers and project leaders, by analysis of existing publication data, and finally the prototypical implementation with refining iterations.
