Publishing Linked Open Data (LOD) would provide a number of benefits to researchers and to the community at large. However, LOD requires publishing with permanent identifiers and permanent reliable representations. This kind of permanence presents a challenge on the web where technologies change at a very rapid rate. By following a number of best practices, it is possible to limit the negative consequences of the rapidly changing web environment. This paper proposes a web architecture that implements those best practices.
