For published datasets, the retention period is unlimited (at least 25 years in RADAR Cloud).
For each data publication, a minimum number of metadata is required. The RADAR metadata schema is based on the DataCite metadata schema and comprises 10 mandatory fields and 13 optional fields.
Each dataset published via RADAR receives a persistent identifier (DataCite-DOI). Via the DOI, the dataset is uniquely and permanently identifiable, citable and can be linked to other typical scientific publications. If required, DOIs for datasets can be reserved already within the scope of metadata annotation.
If research data are not to be published immediately, an optional embargo period of up to one year can be specified. In contrast to the metadata, the dataset will then only be publicly accessible after the embargo period has expired.
For each dataset published in RADAR, data providers choose a license (e.g., Creative Commons 4.0) and thus define the terms of re-using these data. The peer review option can be used prior to data publication.
For published data costs are incurred as single payment only in the year of data publication in RADAR Cloud (in addition to the basic fee). These costs depend on the amount of published data. See price list.
