20 May 2021 - 14:00 to 16:00

This round table aims to validate the work done in the SSHOC project and help us refine the specifications of the FAIR SSH citation prototype, as well as inform our Data Citation Recommendations.

One of SSHOC’s tasks is dedicated to data citation and in particular making data citation machine actionable. This follows the discussions that began during a joint event, “Realising the European Open Science Cloud,” between SSHOC, FREYA, and EOSC-hub in November. This session was organized on data citation, where different approaches and experiences related to data citation were discussed by speakers from SSHOC and beyond. After doing an inventory of SSH citation practices, we are currently developing a prototype to implement what we called “FAIR SSH Data Citation” and based on that work we drafted a first set of recommendations about data citation  adapted to  specific  needs of SSH. For these discussions we are inviting experts from known organizations like RDA.

SSHOC is a project with partners included from a large number of European Research Infrastructures from the social sciences and humanities, and the association of European research libraries (LIBER), funded by the EU framework program Horizon 2020. The main goal of the project is to develop the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
