You can test the RADAR repository for your institution free of charge and without any obligation.
Step by step
To test RADAR, please log in to our test system first. If your institution participates inDFN-AAI(the Authentification and Authorization- Infrastructure of "Deutsches Forschungsnetz"), you can authenticate directly with your institution account in RADAR. Otherwise, please register with the RADAR test system (step A). We will then set up a test environment for your institution and assign administrator rights to your test ID (step B). After that, you can freely manage the test environment for your institution, set up workspaces, authorize additional colleagues as data providers, and get to know RADAR's archiving, publishing, and peer review options.
A. Log in to or register with the RADAR test system:
Select your institution from the drop-down list. After clicking "Next" you will be directed to your institution's login page.
There you authenticate yourself via your institution account and are thus automatically logged in to the RADAR test system.
If you cannot log in to RADAR via your institution account, please register with the RADAR test system:
Click the "Register here" link on the login page of the RADAR test system.
Choose a user name, enter your e-mail address and click the "CREATE" button.
You will receive an e-mail with a confirmation link where you can set your password.
Registration is now completed and you can log in to the RADAR test system with your chosen combination of user name and password.
B. We activate the RADAR test environment for your institution:
Please send us an informal e-mail toinfo [at] radar-service.euwith your e-mail address (if you log in via your institution account) or your user name (if you had to register for the first time) and request to set up a test environment.
We will then set up your RADAR test environment, assign administrator rights to your test ID and get back to you immediately.
RADAR Quickstart Guides
TheRADAR Quickstart Guideswill help you become familiar with RADAR. They provide a brief and descriptive presentation of role-specific activities of administrators and curators. If you have any further questions or would like more detailed advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Real archiving / publication / review options are not available in the test system. Your test data is stored for test purposes only and will not be permanently archived or made available by RADAR. DOIs cannot be resolved. In addition, the test system is regularly updated by our developers. We therefore ask you to excuse error messages and potential limited availability of the system. Nevertheless, once published, all your research data and metadata are publicly viewable!
