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.
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?
The Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD) is organizing a webinar on GDPR for researchers (data producers&users) on September 23rd 14:00:
Will you deal with collecting personal data in the near future?
I would like to invite you to the webinar entitled »Want to collect personal data? How to make the most of it whilst meeting requirement in data protection legislation and respecting the right of data subjects« that will cover:
- data life-cycle management
- what legal questions to consider before data collection
- storage, sharing, archiving,
Die Entwicklung des SSH Open Marketplace als Discovery Portal für geistes- und sozialwissenschaftliche Ressourcen wird vom Projekt SSHOC so partizipativ wie möglich betrieben. Teil dieses partizipativen Ansatzes sind sogenannte Public Consultations, die ausgewählten Communites – in diesem Fall DARIAH – die Gelegenheit geben, ihre Anforderungen, Kritikpunkte und Umsetzungswünsche gemeinsam mit Kolleginnen und Kollegen und vor allem dem Entwicklungsteam hinter dem SSH Open Marketplace zu diskutieren. Unten stehend ist daher die am 3.7.2020 durchgeführte Public Consultation mit der DARIAH Community dokumentiert. Falls Sie Interesse an einer solchen Veranstaltung für Ihre Community haben, melden Sie sich bitte bei uns!
If you are interested to discover the SSH Open Marketplace, join the community of testers!
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
This is the second in a series of posts we are publishing to keep you informed and involved in the development of the SSH Open Marketplace. We want to ensure that the service is useful for the community, and that we receive the feedback necessary to improve it.
In our last post we provided an overview of the SSH Open Marketplace and development timeline, and we stressed why we need your participation in its creation. In this post, we focus on the main concern of a user entering any marketplace: Will I discover what I am looking for? And we pose an important question: What content do you want to see included in the SSH Open Marketplace?
What do we mean by content?
By content we do not refer exclusively to tools or web services, as is often the case, but also to data sets, tutorials, training materials, articles or even other types of material.
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.
SSHOC is looking for SSH researchers willing to test the alpha release of the SSH Open Marketplace and report back on their experience at a dedicated workshop to be held during the ICTeSSH 2020 virtual conference.
What’s in it for you?
- You will be granted privileged access to the not-yet- launched SSH Open Marketplace. A week prior to the workshop, you’ll be asked to test the platform and services on the basis of a set of predefined questions.
- During the workshop you’ll have the opportunity to share your findings in a round table discussion
We’re looking for a maximum of four researchers from different SSH disciplines – see criteria below.
For more than a year now, DARIAH has been leading the creation of the SSH Open Marketplace, a first-class research environment offering tools, services, training materials, research papers and other useful resources for digital researchers, particularly those working in the social sciences and humanities. If you missed the first development steps, this interview will be helpful. To ensure the SSH Open Marketplace matches the requirements of its users – i.e. you: researchers, students, librarians, data stewards, and IT professionals, we try to involve you wherever possible. In this post we describe our participatory design approach, share our timeline, and explain how you can participate in the development.

Being FAIR: A joint workshop effort of CO-OPERAS and SSHOC
CO-OPERAS (https://www.go-fair.org/implementation-networks/overview/co-operas/) and SSHOC (https://sshopencloud.eu/) share a similar task: supporting researchers in the social sciences and humanities to integrate their work and results according to the FAIR principles. To this end, SSHOC and CO-OPERAS organised a joint workshop revolving around FAIR principles for research data in the SSH on the one hand and the development of the SSH Open Marketplace on the other. They asked participants to talk about their needs and experiences with the FAIR principles in their own research realities and then, not independently from this discussion, to give feedback about the conception of the SSHOC Open Marketplace. The idea of organizing a series of workshops in small local settings and in native languages – in this case in German – in order to anchor and align the FAIR principles with individual research practices was coming from the CO-OPERAS GO-FAIR Implementation Network. Already followed by a series of events in Italy (Turin), Portugal (Coimbra), and France (Marseilles), the concept has been proven in Göttingen as well: the uptake of the workshop was, with 28 participants from across the whole country, very good. The German language approach considerably lowered the threshold to give feedback and formulate own ideas.
