DARIAH, the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities, is a European research infrastructure which aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research and teaching across the arts and humanities. DARIAH’s mission is to empower research communities with digital methods to create, connect and share knowledge about culture and society. We maintain an infrastructure that supports researchers working in the diverse community of practice known as the arts and humanities to build, analyse and interpret digital or hybrid resources. DARIAH was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) in August 2014 and is one of the Landmarks on the Roadmap of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI). In 2021, the consortium is composed of 20 member countries and 1 observer, as well as many cooperating partners across 9 non-member countries.
The Board of Directors is the executive body of the DARIAH ERIC and its legal representative. It is composed of 3 members, each working on a part-time basis (0,5 FTE). We are looking to appoint a new member of the Board of Directors from 1 January 2022, who will work closely with the two other existing members.
Dear interested readers,
at the LIBER 2021 Online Conference in June, SSHOC are offering a webinar which is primarily aimed at librarians and will showcase how CLARIN and SSHOC services can be used to support SSH researchers in producing and exploiting highly encoded historical textual data.
The participants will learn about the TEI format, exploring and visualising TEI collections and the added value of SSH Open Marketplace. The webinar will feature a use case based on a corpus of theatrical play texts and will include hands-on exercises.
The webinar will be delivered on June 23, 2021, from 13:30 to 15:30 CEST.
The Beta release of the SSH Open Marketplace launches today and is available for public testing at https://marketplace.sshopencloud.eu/.
Discovery portal for the SSH Community
The SSH Open Marketplace is a discovery portal designed to offer social sciences and humanities researchers the tools, software, datasets, training materials, and workflows they need to manage their data across the full research life cycle.
5000 individual records and growing
Currently boasting some 5000 individual records – and growing, the SSH Open Marketplace is a key deliverable from the SSHOC project and will continue to evolve throughout 2021. Delivery of the final product by consortium partners DARIAH-EU is planned for December.
Online Event | Tuesday, October 20, 15:00 (CEST)

A paramount challenge in present-day knowledge production is to communicate research results in ways that align with our increasingly digital and also increasingly diverse research workflows. Research discovery platforms that have been developed from EU grants and will remain open to the public are game changers in this respect. They support the visibility and discoverability of all sorts of research outputs (datasets, software, protocols, teaching materials etc.) to showcase a broader view of scholarship and enable a greater transparency of scholarly communication.
The webinar aims to introduce an instance of them, the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community Gateway. Built on the top of the OpenAIRE Research Graph, the OpenAIRE Community Gateways work as single access points to a virtual space that connects metadata descriptions of all scholarly objects that are important to the given community.
Registration to the DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020 is now open!
We are pleased to announce that the registration to the DARIAH Virtual Annual Event is now open. We kindly ask you to register for each session that you wish to attend. All meetings will take place via Zoom and the Zoom links will be distributed to registered participants a day or two prior to each session.
The full programme of the event is now finalised and can be found here. With a rich programme of Workshops, Working Groups and Synergy sessions extending over Wednesdays from October 7 to December 2 & Posters, Paper sessions and a keynote by John Unsworth (University of Virginia) on November 10-13, 2020. Select the sessions you would like to attend and make sure you register to be able to follow the event.
das nachstehende Webinar wird von SSHOC durchgeführt und richtet sich v.a. an die DARIAH-Community, ist aber darüber hinaus natürlich offen für alle DH- oder Dataverse-interessierten Personen.
Das Webinar findet in englischer Sprache über AnyMeeting durchgeführt und anmelden kann man sich hier (Link).
We would like to discuss with potential interested researchers and institutes of the DARIAH community what your ideas about such a service are:
- Would your research institute like to use the SSHOC Dataverse, when available?
We are almost ready for the alpha release of the SSH Open Marketplace, developed within the SSHOC project. Would you like to get an early glimpse of what this entails? Would you like to know more on the workflow, development, content decisions and next steps of the SSH Open Marketplace?
Then register for our webinar – Friday 3d of July, at 10h CEST – and join us in a discussion that aims to give the DARIAH community a first glimpse of the alpha release of the SSH Open Marketplace!
In 90 minutes, you’ll learn what role DARIAH and its partners are playing in the creation of the SSH Open Marketplace, how this service is designed to serve Social Sciences and Humanities researchers needs, and especially the Arts and Humanities communities, and how you can contribute to this collaborative project. And most important: This webinar will also be an opportunity to collect your questions and feedback and make sure we are going in the right direction.
Meet the speakers
Between 10:00 and 14:00 CEST on 17 June, SSHOC will take over the Twitter account of the partner organisation DARIAH-EU to promote the Alpha release of the SSH Open Marketplace. The release is scheduled for 30 June.
DARIAH’s Frank Fischer who is also Associate Professor for Digital Humanities at the Moscow Higher School of Economics and leads development of the SSH Marketplace with colleague Laure Barbot, will preside over the session to answer user questions about the resource.
The SSH Open Marketplace is a key deliverable from the SSHOC project and responds to a long-standing demand in the humanities and social sciences for an inclusive, curated, easily accessible overview of digital tools and services, training material, data and scientific papers. The aim of the developers is to gather existing resources from both disciplines, to pool and harmonise them, and then to enhance the offering with supporting contextual information. As well as making an important contribution to the SSH domain, the resulting resource will also be incorporated into the emerging European Open Science Cloud.
The DARIAH Code Sprint 2019 on Bibliographical Metadata will take place from 24.-26.09.2019 in Berlin. A few places are still free. Registration is possible at https://desircodesprint.sciencesconf.org/registration
Although this is already our second DARIAH code sprint it is not exclusively addressed to participants of the first code sprint. Everyone is welcome!
You are invited to join the DARIAH Code Sprint 2019! It is an opportunity to bring together interested developers and DH-affiliated people, not only from the wide DARIAH community. For this purpose we would like to cordially invite you to spend three days in Berlin working on topics related to bibliographical metadata. The registration is now open and can be found here.
Although this is already our second DARIAH code sprint it is not exclusively addressed to participants of the first code sprint. Everyone is welcome! An affiliation to coding in the Digital Humanities or general in technological discussions would although be helpful.
The code sprint will take place from September 24th to September 26th 2019 in Berlin in a relaxed and productive environment.
