Rules for good scientific practice serve as a framework of integrity in the scientific processes. In Germany, these rules are reflected in the recommendations of the German Research Foundation (DFG) for safeguarding good scientific practice. With regard to research data, it is recommended that: "Primary data as the basis for publications shall be securely stored for ten years in a durable form in the institution of their origin." Data providers can comply with this recommendation by publishing or archiving data in RADAR.
