does anyone know more about the contracts of ISO regarding newer
versions or developments of standards? Do followup reports have to be
published through ISO? And is there a possible Open Access/Postprint

I don't know which differences occured in the OAIS standard since the
publication of the Blue Book. Had anyone the possibility to look into
the ISO-version to compare the two versions?
