Abstract: The Science Archives at ESAC represent a major research and discovery asset for the scientific community. They currently contain data from 13 missions - astronomy from gamma-rays to microwaves and solar system data from the Sun through Venus, the Moon, Mars, Titan and out to comets. In the next few years, data from another 5 missions (including heliospheric ones) will be added. This paper describes the long-term strategy which has been defined for these archives to cover science exploitation, long-term preservation and support to the science operations.
