Secure, easy and cross-disciplinary archival and publication of research data

With RADAR, scientists can upload research data from completed scientific studies and projects via a web portal, compile them into data packages, describe them with metadata, have them peer-reviewed, permanently archive them, or make them publicly accessible.

The research data repository RADAR offers:

  • scientists  a comprehensive and reliable archiving and publishing service for digital research data including a peer-review option.
  • publicly funded research institutions and universities in Germany the opportunity to offer a research data repository for their institution without great effort and thus to sustainably secure their own research output and make it visible.
  • the scientific community access to archived or published research data in accordance with the FAIR Principles, thus making an important contribution to the improved availability, sustainable preservation and independent publication capability of research data.
